Recently reassigned to the small Norfolk town of Saltmarsh, Jejeune's two worlds collide with the grisly murder of a prominent ecological activist. Jejeune must call on all his birding knowhow to solve the mystery and deal with unwelcome public acclaim, the mistrust of colleagues and his own insecurities. For in the case of the Saltmarsh birder murders, the victims may not be the only casualties....

Really enjoyed this one

As a keen birder who loves crime novels this one was always going to be a winner. Add in my all time favourite narrator, David Thorpe, and it turned into one of my best listens of the last year.

Fascinating novel

Although not a birder I found this novel fascinating and thoroughly enjoyed the birding information as well as the absorbing crime story. Before I’d finished it I bought the second audiobook on this series, confident I’d enjoy it as much as I was this first one. The information about birds and the environment was enthralling and added a great deal to the story and I loved the interesting characters too. An excellent first novel in what I’m sure is going to prove one of my favourite series. The reading by David Thorpe was perfect.
