Pat McGrath Avery's Murder is for the Birds certainly has an intriguing start; the murderer muses over killing the victim with a walking stick? It's definitely different. Hap Lynch was a cop before he retired. Now he and his wife volunteer in a bird sanctuary in Texas. When someone's found dead, Hap volunteers to help the local police. It helps that his neighbor is assigned to the case. And, since no-one here's used to murder, it helps that Hap knows exactly what to do. He's pleasingly supportive too, not getting in the way (much), but talking to everyone, making phone-calls, and, of course, with the help of his dog, noticing all those little details. The victim's an editor and the list of possible suspects includes almost everyone who's ever worked with him. But Hap and his neighbor are soon writing notes and narrowing down their lists. A classic, simple who-dun-it, told with lots of dialog and a cast of characters just waiting for more in the series. Disclosure: I read this book in the mystery section of the Dan Poynter Global eBook Awards.
