A Siege of Bitterns : A Birder Murder Mystery, Paperback Book

A Siege of Bitterns : A Birder Murder Mystery Paperback

Part of the Point Blank series


Newly appointed police inspector Domenic Jejeune doesn't mind ruffling a few feathers.

Indeed his success has elevated him into a poster boy for the police.

The problem is Jejeune doesn't really want to be a detective at all; he much prefers watching birds. Recently reassigned to the small Norfolk town of Saltmarsh, located in the heart of Britain's premier birding country, Jejeune's two worlds collide with the grisly murder of a prominent ecological activist.

His ambitious police superintendent foresees a blaze of welcome publicity, although doubts soon emerge when Jejeune's best theory involves a feud over birdwatching lists.

A second murder does little to bolster confidence. Jejeune must call on all his birding knowhow to solve the mystery and deal with unwelcome public acclaim, the mistrust of colleagues and his own insecurities.

For, in the case of the Saltmarsh birder murders, the victims may not be the only casualties...
