The novel is situated in southern Florida and the hero is a state game warden named Hal Noble who is dedicated to the conservation of nature and the environment. He finds himself pitted against the unscrupulous Malcolm Grimes who has sold information of the bird's whereabouts to several diverse parties with an interest in exploiting the animal.
