About the Book    About the Author

This short story, set prior to the events of Because We Are: A Novel of Haiti, features the return of two children from the slums of Port-au-Prince, the brash Libète and brilliant Jak. As a generation-old family feud is about to explode over some stolen chickens, only these pint-sized detectives are able to uncover who is behind the missing birds and prevent new blood from flowing in the streets of Cité Soleil.

For those who have read Oswald’s full-length mystery novel Because We Are, The Bloodied Birds offers a return ticket to Haiti, weaving a story of intrigue, heart, and social conscience that will please readers of all stripes.
