Product description


'Most entertaining.' * The Times * `Entertaining, instructive and amusing'. * The Comet * 'I didn't realise trying to spot rare birds could be so ruthlessly competitive, with fowl play as a result in this Midsomer-ish case'. * Peterborough Telegraph * 'A sound plot and well-drawn characters within the police and from all sides of Norfolk's ecological issues make for a most entertaining read'. * The Times * 'The books are well written...and instructive. We are promised a series of birder murder stories: good!' * Literary Review * 'It's always nice to come across a new angle in crime fiction...this is an entertaining visit to the Norfolk coast and a good introduction to the world of birders'. * Crime Review * 'A new genre is born: the "birder murder"'. * Sunday Times Crime Club * 'One of the most delightful...mysteries of recent years'. * Daily Mail * `A murder plot built around birdwatching doesn't, at first, seem plausible or even possible. But Burrows pulls it off in a dazzling debut... Riveting from first page to final line.' * Globe and Mail * `While Jejeune may not be too enthusiastic about his profession, it's easy to be enthusiastic about Burrows' first mystery, and I'm looking forward to more fowl play in the future.' * National Post * `Finally, a solid, well-constructed murder mystery that happens to involve a subject with which many mystery readers might not be familiar.' * Booklist * 'Filled with clues dead ends ... and blinding moments of "Eureka!' * Owen-Sound Sun Times *
