The Black Birds Flew
After months of badgering, Tim Piget convinces a farmer to sell one of
his fields for a new development site. A month into construction,
an excavator unearths two long-dead bodies. The ensuing investigation leads police
to the farmer’s wife who left 30 years earlier to start a new life with her lover.
Or did she?
Amid the threat of outsourcing, DCI Maude Wakefield and DS Edie Yorke
of the Abbington Police Services struggle to uncover a link between the
past and present before the murderer strikes again.
