Come Death and High Water Paperback

Part of the George and Molly Palmer-jones series


Come Death and High Water is the second novel featuring George and Molly Palmer-Jones by Ann Cleeves, author of the Shetland and Vera Stanhope crime series. The privately-owned island of Gillibry off the North Devon coast is the perfect site for murder.

A routine weekend visit by the Gillibry Bird Observatory Trust is made memorable by the owner's announcement that he is going to sell the island.

A sale would mean the end of the Observatory...and of all that, for some of them, made life worth living.

A fire in Charlie Todd's cottage added to their distress. And when, next morning, after a fierce storm, they found Charlie dead in a bird hide, their pleasant September weekend assumed a dangerous new face.

Charlie Todd's murder could have been the deed of any member of the Trust. And it falls to one of their own, George Palmer-Jones, to unravel the identity of killer within their midst.
