Burrows’ bird-watching expertise lends authenticity to an excellent mystery whose conflicted protagonist faces hard decisions.
It’s clear where Burrows is taking this series — more birds, and more murder. That’s a good thing.
The Globe and Mail
Burrows skilfully makes his birds and birding an integral part of the plot, just as he brings Jejeune’s personal drama into this suspenseful and well-constructed mystery.
His writing is gripping and the storyline will keep any reader turning the pages, but the bird-watching references woven into his prose are again a real treat for birders.
London Free Press
A fun crime and criminals read.
The Sun Times
A suspenseful and well-crafted mystery ideal for the beach.
The Morning Star
A series that continues to get better with each book.
Reviewing the Evidence
Smart, funny and nerdy (grammar and birdwatching are among characters’ preoccupations) with the most endearing feminist bent. This third book is the best one yet.
Burrows knows how to create tension and suspense with both police and civilian characters. This books comes highly recommended.
Waterloo Region Record
Memorable characters play out against a web of unexpected plot twists and surprises.
