Publisher's Summary

Why would a killer ignore expensive jewellery and take a pair of turtledoves as the only bounty? This is only one of the questions that piques Chief Inspector Domenic Jejeune's interest after a senior attaché with the Mexican Consulate is found murdered alongside the director of a local bird sanctuary. The fact that the director's death has opened up a full-time research position hasn't eluded Jejeune either. Could this be his escape from policing?

Jejeune knows he owes it to the victims to solve the case. But a trail that weaves from embittered aviary owners to suspicious bird sculptors only seems to be leading him farther from the truth. With two careers hanging in the balance, the stakes have never been higher for Inspector Jejeune.

    Story
    "If you read the first book you've read this one."

    I was really excited about a detective series in Norfolk that featured birding, something I know little about but find interesting. In that I have not been disappointed. It is irritating to me that the author chose to create 'conflict' by making the detective hate his job because he longs to be a research ornithologist. If he wants that go do it!!! Geez! The girlfriend when not cutting Dominick down to size, is a jealous, insecure b*tch. The boss is a sexually frustrated, ruthless careerist who always sabotages Dominick's investigations. Although the story turns out to be satisfying and complex, this author doesn't need to clutter up the action with the above-mentioned devices.
    One bright spot is the evolving relationship between Dom and his Sergeant. It is interesting as they get the feel for working together and develop a strong working relationship.
    Worth a credit but the first 2 books are rather formulaic and similar.
