Description

Police Sergeant William South has a good reason to shy away from murder investigations: He is a murderer himself.

Long-listed for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year

A methodical, diligent, and exceptionally bright detective, South is an avid birdwatcher and trusted figure in his small town on the rugged Kentish coast. He also lives with the deeply buried secret that, as a child in Northern Ireland, he may have killed a man.

When a fellow birdwatcher is found murdered in his remote home, South's world flips. The culprit seems to be a drifter from South's childhood. The victim was the only person connecting South to his early crime, and a troubled, vivacious new female sergeant has been relocated from London and assigned to work with South. As our hero investigates, he must work ever harder to keep his own connections to the victim and his past a secret.

The Birdwatcher is British crime fiction at its finest: a stirring portrait of flawed, vulnerable investigators, a meticulously constructed mystery, and a primal story of fear, loyalty, and vengeance.

Critiques

"Well told [and] affecting. The writing is beautifully understated, and the characters are vividly drawn and likable in their imperfections. Shaw makes the stony landscape an important element in the work; it becomes, by the end of the story, a place to which readers will feel a curiously strong attachment." ( Booklist)
"Engaging.... A fine procedural.... The action builds to a thrilling ending." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Award-winning author Shaw...delivers an outstanding stand-alone novel; its gritty protagonist, intricate plot, and atmospheric description of the English countryside will please readers of Tana French's 'Dublin Murder Squad' series." ( Library Journal)

This is an offbeat mystery. I liked the setting, the birds, the characters and the slow unfolding of a good story. I hope there is a sequel in the works.

Very good Narrator & Good Mystery

With the Audio version you can tell by the accents, that the story takes place in two countries/cities, and goes back and forth in time. (The Narrator makes the story more lively than the book.) A good story.
