A Shimmer of Hummingbirds by Steve Burrows

Domenic loves where he lives, his girlfriend and his job.  His cases have been complicated and hard to figure out but his staff is good and he's smart so they've been successful.  Now if he could just save his brother...

One World Publications and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published May 8th.

Domenic takes some time off and goes out birdwatching.  His love knows he's also looking for clues about why what happened happened to his brother.  His brother took a man deep in the jungle to find an elusive hummingbird and the man had a disease that killed four of the tribe they visited.  They want him for murder.  What he finds is that everything is not as cut and dried as he would like it to be.  It's a foreign land and they would rather put the white man in jail.  But he knows his brother would not do that on purpose.

He eventually finds the truth and almost dies getting it but no one will listen.  Back at the station, an old enemy of his is in charge and he's setting Domenic up for a fall.

The case that was beginning when Domenic left finally gets resolved but no one looks good. The best part of this story for me was the women.  The lady cops are tough and they see through the enemy. 

It was a different read and you learn about birds on the way.  It's interesting.  Give it a try.
