A Foreboding of Petrels

Birder Murder Mysteries

Steve Burrows

On suspension and unable to work, DCI Domenic Jejeune finds his attention snared by an unexplained death at an Antarctic research base. Meanwhile, DS Danny Maik investigates a string of arson attacks in Norfolk.
When a corpse is discovered in a bird hide, Danny’s investigation escalates. It appears the body links the two enquiries, but the men are unable to share information. As they attempt to unravel a twisted web of leads involving Antarctic researchers, uncompromising climate scientists and billionaire philanthropists, Jejeune is forced to decide how much he is willing to sacrifice in the pursuit of truth.

Reviews

Praise for the Birder Murder Mysteries:

‘A murder plot built around birdwatching doesn’t, at first, seem plausible or even possible. But Burrows pulls it off... Riveting from first page to final line.’ Globe and Mail

‘A suspenseful and well-crafted mystery perfect for the beach.’ Morning Star

‘Skillfully written, full of moral ambiguities and artful puzzles, with a spine-tingling final sentence.’ Kirkus, starred review
