A Tiding of Magpies


Domenic Jejeune is forced to confront his past, as the scene of his greatest triumph threatens to reveal his darkest secrets.

When his most celebrated case is suddenly reopened, Detective Chief Inspector Jejeune’s long-buried secrets threaten to come to light. Meanwhile, his girlfriend, Lindy, faces an unseen threat of her own, one which may also be connected to the old case. With Jejeune preoccupied fending off inquiries from the Crown Prosecution Service and the media, it will be up to the stalwart Sergeant Maik to protect Lindy. With the chief superintendent’s long-standing support for Jejeune fading, the pressure is on to solve a recent murder case. Clues from the old case may be helpful in solving this new crime, but delving into the past may prove difficult for Domenic Jejeune ... and dangerous for them all.
