    • Abstract:
      Summary: When a senior attaché with the Mexican Consulate is found dead alongside the director of a local bird sanctuary, many details pique Inspector Jejeunes interest, including a vacant field research position: a full-time job studying birds. Is this the escape from policing that he has been looking for? But first there's a murder to solve.

Booklist Reviews 2015 June #1

The sequel to the author's first "birder mystery," A Siege of Bitterns (2014), is just as good as its predecessor. Chief Inspector Domenic Jejeune, the Canadian cop who's been relocated to Norfolk, England, is a bit of a local celeb after solving a tricky murder. Now the head of a bird sanctuary is dead, apparently the victim of homicide. Jejeune is pretty sure he knows why the man was killed, but he's having trouble convincing the higher-ups that he's on the right track. The detective is seriously considering hanging up his badge and turning his part-time hobby (birdwatching, of course) into something more full-time, but his conscience won't let him leave a murder unsolved, even if it means embarking on a path that could put his own life in jeopardy. A cleverly written novel that proves A Siege of Bitterns wasn't just an offbeat one-off. This blend of procedural and cozy is just right for followers of M. C. Beaton's Hamish Macbeth.
