Description

Dr Nell Ward is an ecologist, not a detective. But when she’s the prime suspect in a murder, only her unique set of skills could help to clear her name…

In the sleepy village of Cookingdean, Dr Nell Ward is busy working in the grounds of a local manor house. Whilst inspecting an old tunnel, the last thing she expects to overhear is a murder. As the only person with any clues as to what happened, Nell soon finds herself in the middle of the investigation.

Desperate to clear her name Nell, along with her colleague Adam, set out solving the murder using their skills as ecologists to uncover details no one else would notice. But it soon becomes clear that playing Agatha Christie is much harder than it might, at first appear…

The start of an exciting new cosy crime series – perfect for fans of Richard Osman, Faith Martin and Joy Ellis.

Brava…!
A fabulous start to a new series in ‘A Murder of Crows’. The murder of Sophie Crow brings detectives to the door of Dr Nell Ward, an ecologist highly regarded in her field, who becomes their main person of interest. Nell, who has her own secrets, needs to work hard to exonerate herself and uses her own particular brand of expertise to examine the evidence. Billed as a cosy mystery but is so much more with ecological references and police procedural aspects aplenty. With a credible and colourful cast of characters, a compelling plot and a solid narrative this is a wholly immersive one sit read. I would also recommend reading the enlightening section towards the back of the book, following acknowledgments, entitled ‘The Nature of Crime’. The second of the series is hugely anticipated. Brava!

I do love a good murder mystery!
This is perfect for Agatha raisin and midsommer murder fans.
A small village and a murder solve but when you are the main suspect you want to clear your name.
Starting your own investigation is not as easy as you think but it sure is exciting!!
