Summary
Newly appointed DCI Domenic Jejeune doesn't mind ruffling feathers. Indeed, his success has make him into a poster boy for the police. The problem is Jejeune much prefers watching birds. Recently arrived in the small Norfolk town of Saltmarsh, right at the heart of Britain's premier birding county, Jejeune's worlds collide with the grisly murder of a prominent ecological activist. His superintendent foresees a blaze of welcome publicity; but this is not quite the case when Jejeune's best theory involves a feud over birdwatching lists, while a second murder does nothing to bolster confidence. Jejeune must call on all his birding knowhow to solve the mystery. After all, in the case of the Saltmarsh birder murders, the victims may not be the only casualties..
