Publisher's Summary

Young Tom French was found dead, lying in a marsh on the Norfolk coast, with his head bashed in and his binoculars still around his neck. One of the best birders in England, Tom had put the village of Rushy on the birdwatching map. Everyone liked him. Or did they?
George Palmer-Jones, an elderly birdwatcher who decided quietly to look into the brutal crime, discovered mixed feelings aplenty. But as he and his fellow "twitchers" flocked from Norfolk to Scotland to the Scilly Isles in response to rumours of rare sightings, George - with help from his lovely wife, Molly - gradually discerned the true markings of a killer. All he had to do was prove it...before the murderer struck again.

Gripping until the ending

Have you ever read one of those Agatha Christie novels where you try really hard to work with the detective only for a snippet of information to arrive from Somerset house, transforming our understanding of events?
So it is with this book. It is a good listen, but when all is 'revealed' I felt cheated by the deceptive presentation of one character. It made the resolution seem random.

Didn't like narrator

What would have made A Bird in the Hand better?

Some one different reading it he was too monotones I found I was struggling to listen to the story and not the drone of a flat voice

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I can't answer this I could not listen any longer

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Seán Barrett?
