Newly appointed police inspector Domenic Jejeune doesn¿t mind ruffling a few feathers. Indeed his success has elevated him into a poster boy for the police. 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, located in the heart of Britain¿s premier birding country, Jejeune¿s two worlds collide with the grisly murder of a prominent ecological activist. His ambitious police superintendent foresees a blaze of welcome publicity, although doubts soon emerge when Jejeune¿s best theory involves a feud over birdwatching lists. A second murder does little to bolster confidence.
