This is book number 2 in the Spy Shop Mystery series.
Honeymooners hoping to find a quiet spot for a romantic picnic instead discover the dead body of Forrest Yates, a top birding guide and bottom-dweller human. The murder rattles the local birding association as they prepare for the yearly influx of Sandhill Cranes and the wanna-be ornithologists who flock to the island to watch them. With Ned “The Pelican Man” Quinn as their sidekick, Xena and her team explore the dark side of birding and the tenuous relationship between commerce and nature to solve the case.
Is the killer targeting birdwatchers on Galveston Island? Who might be next? Private investigator Xena Cali and her team will need to use cars, boats, kayaks, drones, bird calls, the Dude Scrubber, and every gadget in their ditty bags to bag the bad girl or guy. She ruffles a lot of feathers as she winds her way to the final battle for justice.
