From the author of Shetland and Vera

‘The huge and powerful hawk dominated the scene. Its talons pierced the woman’s flesh and the beak pointed towards her eyes . . .’

The sight is a particularly horrible shock for George Palmer-Jones, ornithologist and amateur detective. An old friend of Eleanor Masefield, a beautiful and charming widow, he is staying with his wife, Molly, at Eleanor’s family run hotel . . .

On the other hand, Molly Palmer-Jones feels that Eleanor was more of a black than a merry widow – a ruthless manipulator of all those caught in her far-reaching web. Is Molly a little jealous, or is she right? And will she be in time to prevent another death?

    A nice little murder

    Set in Hereford with birds of prey involved throughout. Palmer -Jones and his wife Molly proved that after 30 years of marriage things can get a little testy.
