Ionist medical examiner Dr Mansfield Jones and the super intelligent Empowered Investigator Constable Des Gill who abruptly disappears from the novel add colour to the story Several other characters sprinkled throughout the book like the Polish count make for interesting colour too On the other hand Jejeune is a bit of an enigma we are told that he s a whiz kid but there s little demonstration of his superior abilities Lindy Hey s character is really under developed and it s difficult to see any spark between her and Jejeune Perhaps that was dealt with in earlier books before this oneThe ending total melodrama although it brings the novel to a soft landing The is set for the next birder murder mystery there s plenty The is set for the next birder murder mystery there s plenty scope to move the series along in new directions if the author chooses to do soFinally there s clever use of the birding theme throughout the story The magpie s role in the kidnapping story is interesting and the "Government Sponsored Bounty Hunting Of The Ducks Is Bittersweet The "sponsored bounty hunting of the ducks is bittersweet The is the educational portion of the story and provides local colour In the final analysis this is an enjoyable read although it s a challenge to follow the story at times It s heavy on plot with some weakness on character development RecommendedThanks to the publisher and Netgalley for a review copy of this book The views expressed above are my own I used to really like this series but lately I wonder if I have read one too many I am beginning to weary of Jejeune the detective and protagonist I am weary of his silences and of his propensity to disengage from others for the slightest reason I enjoy the descriptions of Norfolk a place I have always wanted to visit and though I am not and probably never will be a birdwatcher I admire the breadth of knowledge Steve Burrows has about our feathered friends However I think Jejeune should uit policing and ust become a monk He s never going to marry his longsuffering girlfriend anyway His fugitive brother and Danny Maik are far interesting men And Holland should be up on harassment charges Still a good mystery series but glacial in pace and devoid of pizzazzJejeune should be a bit ejeune if you ask me Book 5 in the Birder Murder MysteryNo doubts reading this book you will soon see how the author s passion for birds is the driving force throughout the mystery Mr Burrows knows how to spin a very intricate web of intrigue and weave the threads in a very particular way It may take some time to get familiar with his style I admit to have had a bit of trouble staying focused with A Tiding of Magpies and by the end this story never truly gelled To enjoy this book and series at its maximum I highly suggest reading the previous installments in order first I have yet to read book 2 and 3 and I must say I missed out and was a bit lost at time not to have done so This is the main reason I did not enjoy the story to Able to protect her from Between fending off inuiries from the internal review and an open murder case to solve than ever Jejeune will have to rely on the help of the stalwart Sergeant Danny Maik But Maik is learning things ,

This is book 5 in the Birder Murder Mysteries series I must admit that I m always fearful to read books in a series especially when I haven t read the previous books Occasionally books can stand on their own and you don t really need
To Have Read The 
have read the books Unfortunately that was not the case with this novel What first attracted me to this book was the fact that I m also a bird watcher and I thought it would be cool to read a mystery that brought together both of my passions The book starts with Detective Chief Inspector Domenic Jejeune working together with Sergeant Danny Maik to resolve a murder of a young man in a Polish community in Canada The positive aspects of this book are the fact that the mystery starts off strong and really picks up midway through the book the extensive descriptions of through the book The extensive descriptions of and I particularly enjoyed the explanation on Eurasian magpies Unfortunately the fact that most of the important characters had been introduced in previous books really made understanding and even sympathizing with them extremely difficult to me Jejeune seemed flat and unrealistic as a character and I spent most of the book trying to understand the references to events from previous books It is almost unfair to properly rate a book that I could have enjoyed better had I read at least one of the previous books My advice is to read the other books in the series to get a better appreciation for this novel I d like to thank NetGalley for providing me with a free early copy of this book in exchange for my honest review This is a good police detective novel It s the 5th in the birder murder mystery series featuring DCI Domenic JeJeune and is set in on the east coast of England north of London Jejeune is off to a fresh start in his police career as a result of events in the previous books in the series He is presented with a new murder case when a burned body of a man is found at a construction site At the same time he is dealing with a formal review of one of his early cases which involved the kidnapping of Britain s Home Secretary s daughter and her boyfriend In addition there are some legacy issues from earlier books in the series eg his girlfriend s life is threatened by the mysterious Ray Hayes who really wants revenge against JejeuneDespite a slow start it s a busy action filled novel with all of the several storylines playing out at or "less the same time Some of the activity narrative and characters "the same time Some of the activity narrative and characters make sense to those who have read the series other books This is the first of the series I read and I learned that I missed some of the nuances To avoid that I d strongly recommend reading the previous birder murder mysteries before starting this one Outstanding for me is the cast of supporting characters Sgt Danny Maik and Constable Holland are great recurring characters Maik is definite star material and Holland plays the class clown The perfect.

A Tiding of MagpiesHe max The author barely goes back in time so you are left outThis latest continues the saga in Detective Chief Inspector Jejeune when his most celebrated case is suddenly reopened and his long buried secrets threaten to come to light Skillfully written neatly constructed police procedural and a mystery centered on an inexplicably confounding murder of a young man At the same time his girlfriend Lindy faces threat of her own and Jejeune needs to go all out to protect herThis is one convoluted mystery that unfolds through the eyes of a bird loving Canadian detective extraordinaire He is still unenthusiastic about his work but solving puzzles is his forte and Jejeune this smart detective will get his man at any costor will heI have mixed feelings about this book my fault I should have read the installments I missed no excuses I have them in hands and I should definitely have read them sooner I felt lost at times and often uestioned things came from although I finally understood where all of this was Slow in pacing this story trots along like a tired but stubborn old mule and like the mule needs a good push and less fuss The characterization is good but trying to remember where they fit in is a challenge some are recurring players The plot is interesting suspenseful in its own way and has some surprises to twist things around Creating a captivating story around birds is an enterprise not all can master and weaving it into an entertaining mystery is a feat in itself Mr Burrows does hold up as an expert in both This book may not have been my preferred by this author but I am not giving up on himoh yes I will catch up before the next installment comes outI received this ARC for review by the publisher Dundurncom via NetGalleys I ve got to hand it to Mr Burrows each of his books seem to be better than the previous one His writing reminds me a lot of Louise Penny and her Inspector Gamache series with added birding details Both authors may allow their detective to solve the issue of each book but there is an overarching story line about the main characters that keeps "the reader anxious to read the next installment Interestingly both men "reader anxious to read the next installment Interestingly both men uestions about their professional integrity and they tackle these issues in similar fashion by uietly working behind the scenesI m up to date now and very ready for A Dance of Cranes to be released later this month and I m number 3 on my library s hold list so that s good I ll be waiting to see if Dominic JeJeune can sort out the predicament that he s got himself into now through his own wish to withhold information from LindyIt seems to me that Burrows is enjoying the BritishCanadian interplay and the details of the two countries that he has considered home And every time I read one of these books I want to return to Norfolk it s been 20 years since I first visited there and I m due for a return one of these days.
