Description

This special 3-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 (New!)
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.
