At a Halloween night party in a small Connecticut town, six men dress as scarecrows to perform a comic dance. The next morning their leader, still in costume, is found brutally murdered in a cornfield. Enter Jonathan Wilder, a respected ornithologist and one of the best bird artists of today. Handsome, restless, adventurous, he travels the world to paint the birds featured in his nature guides. But he is no detective. Still, when the mayor is also found dead, Jon is sure he knows the killer but the police believe they have the suspect too: Wilder himself. Now, Jon must apply all his wits - as well as his knowledge of the way of birds - to clear his own name and prevent himself from becoming a victim of the real murderer. To help him, he enlists the help of his closest friend, woodcarver Colin Hightower, and a beautiful young divorcee who has recently moved to town, Lorelei Merriwell. But unmasking the murderer becomes a dangerous and daunting task; time is running out, and questions without answers keep arising.
When Grover's uncle leaves his farm to Grover to take care of, will he be successful by himself, or will he need some help from his friends from Sesame Street?
