A Siege of Bitterns: A Birder Murder Mystery | Steve Burrows
4 posts | 2 read | 4 to read
Globe and Mail 100: Best Books of 2014 2015 Arthur Ellis Award Winner, Best First Novel 2015 Kobo Emerging Writer Prize Shortlisted, Best Mystery Newly appointed police inspector Domenic Jejeune doesnt mind ruffling a few feathers to flush out suspects in the brutal murder of a renowned ecological activist. Inspector Domenic Jejeunes success has made him a poster boy for the U.K. police service. The problem is Jejeune doesnt 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 Britains premier birding country, Jejeunes two worlds collide when he investigates the grisly murder of a prominent ecological activist. His ambitious police superintendent foresees a blaze of welcome publicity, but she begins to have her doubts when Jejeunes most promising theory involves a feud over birdwatching lists. A second murder only complicates matters. To unravel this mystery, Jejeune must deal with unwelcome public acclaim, the mistrust of colleagues, and his own insecurities. In the case of the Saltmarsh birder murders, the victims may not be the only casualties.

Never read these, not a birder myself, but I've heard good things. Anyone tried the series?
