I really liked this. The right number of characters and clever relationships. Well written too...and it is better than the Video.

This story is in Set 1 of Vera which I have viewed. The book, however, is better than the DVD version. 4 friends , again birders, are the focus of this story. A young women and a teen boy have been murdered in similar ways in the same area. Remarkable how each character in the story could be a suspect.
