The Paris Deadline by Max Byrd

The Paris Deadline Reviewed by Julie Moderson

I usually love Max Byrd’s work. Even though The Paris Deadline is good, it is not his usual “great” book.

The story takes place in Paris in 1926. Newspaper reporter Toby Keats stumbles upon a strange duck and the story begins. The duck eats and digests food. It is a pooping duck and everyone wants it for a much more sinister reason. Different groups want the duck because it might hold the key to weapons technology.

Byrd overwhelms the reader because of the many details. He gives the names of streets, alleys and people. He paints a clear picture to explain what he wants you to understand but you struggle to keep all the details straight and try to sort out what is important and what is not.
