Steve Burrows has pursued his birdwatching hobby on six continents. Steve lives in Oshawa, Ontario. See more in this series. Why would a killer ignore expensive jewellery and take a pair of turtledoves as the only bounty? Halifax Chronicle Herald. The fact that the director's death has opened up a full-time research position hasn't eluded Jejeune either. Could this be his escape from policing? Jejeune knows he owes it to the victims to solve the case. But a trail that weaves from embittered aviary owners to suspicious bird sculptors only seems to be leading him farther from the truth.
With two careers hanging in the balance, the stakes have never been higher for Inspector Jejeune. Pro: good characters, good milieu, good writing. Spectacular performance by David Thorpe, who can do it all from moms to monkeys. Cons: too long, a bit convoluted. This is not a book that you can just have on in the background. You have to listen to appreciate it. Unless you just want David Thorpe to keep you company, which is totally valid. I liked it enough to move on to book three.
This is an excellent mystery. The plot is complicated, the murderer identified, but then not. It's a book for bird lovers, all about birds. Second book out of three, and my favorite. I really would like this author to write a forth. The narration is excellent as in the two other books. The Chief Inspector is one with outstanding deduction skills, picking up on the smallest details in interviews. There are two exciting scenes for him as he tries to bring in possible murderers, and the story continues with some doubts as to their guilt, while politics and diplomats stick to the story they want to accept as the truth.
I'll definitely listen to this one a second time.

I was really excited about a detective series in Norfolk that featured birding, something I know little about but find interesting. In that I have not been disappointed. It is irritating to me that the author chose to create 'conflict' by making the detective hate his job because he longs to be a research ornithologist. If he wants that go do it!!! The boss is a sexually frustrated, ruthless careerist who always sabotages Dominick's investigations.
Although the story turns out to be satisfying and complex, this author doesn't need to clutter up the action with the above-mentioned devices. One bright spot is the evolving relationship between Dom and his Sergeant. It is interesting as they get the feel for working together and develop a strong working relationship. Worth a credit but the first 2 books are rather formulaic and similar. Your audiobook is waiting…. A Pitying of Doves.
