Chief Inspector Domenic Jejeune hopes an overseas birding trip will hold some clues to solving his fugitive brother’s manslaughter case. Meanwhile, in Jejeune’s absence his long-time nemesis has been drafted in as cover to investigate an accountant’s murder. And unfortunately Marvin Laraby proves just a bit too effective in showing how an investigation should be handled. With the manslaughter case poised to claim another victim, Jejeune learns an accident back home in Britain involving his girlfriend, Lindy, is much more than it seems. Lindy is in grave danger, and she needs Jejeune. Soon, he is faced with a further dilemma. He can speak up on a secret he has discovered relating to Laraby’s case, knowing it will cost his job on the north Norfolk coast he loves. Or he can stay silent, and let a killer escape justice. Turns out that sometimes the wrong choice is the only one there is.

This special four-book bundle collects the first three books in the acclaimed, award-winning Birder Murder Mystery series. Includes: A Siege of Bitterns Inspector Domenic Jejeune’s success has made him a poster boy for the U.K. police service. The problem is Jejeune doesn’t really want to be a detective at all; he much prefers watching birds. Recently reassigned to the small Norfolk town of Saltmarsh in the heart of Britain’s premier birding country, Jejeune’s worlds collide when he investigates the grisly murder of a prominent ecological activist. 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. A Pitying of Doves 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 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 studying birds hasn’t eluded Jejeune either. Could this be the escape from policing that the celebrated detective has been seeking? A Cast of Falcons A man falling to his death from a remote cliff sets off a high-stakes chase for Inspector Domenic Jejeune, who must protect his fugitive brother and pursue a maddening foe, while any misstep could bring down wrath from above on Jejeune, his family, and the entire police force. A Shimmer of Hummingbirds (New!) The desperate departure of his fugitive brother has left Chief Inspector Jejeune rattled, and those around him nursing lingering suspicions. When evidence surfaces that may prove his brother’s innocence, Jejeune decides to take a leave of absence to pursue it. But his replacement looks as if he may want the position to be more than temporary.
