A Foreboding of Petrels: Birder Murder Mysteries (Paperback)Steve Burrows (author)
- Coming soon
Serving out a suspension, DCI Domenic Jejeune is occupying himself by looking into a strange death at an Antarctic research base, which appears to have been predicted by the victim in a blog entry. Meanwhile, a quiet period has left DS Danny Maik with only a string of arson attacks to investigate, including one at a local climate monitoring facility. A body found in a bird hide might connect the two lines of enquiry, but Jejeune's suspension means the men cannot share information. Ensnared in a web of shared leads involving secretive Antarctic researchers, uncompromising climate scientists and billionaire philanthropists, Jejeune and Maik discover that, when the heart is involved, some crimes are beyond the reach of the law.

'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
