  The hushed tones and gentle poetry of this book provide a beautiful ode to the common barn owl. This book centers on an old barn that has stood in a field of wheat for at least years. Owls sleep in the barn during the day, and they come out at night to hunt for mice. For more than years owls have lived here and hunted here.   The Day of the Owl () was the first of his many detective novels and stories, the most straightforward and, perhaps for that reason, the most satisfying. Its characters are distinctive but not idiosyncratic, individuals but also figures, of age-old degradation, of folkish cunning, of refined corruption, of barbaric or civilized virtue.
