Jan Dunlap - Murder on Warbler Weekend

A Bob White Birder Murder Mystery

by Jan Dunlap

ISBN-13: 978-0878393213

For birder Bob White, May in Minnesota means three things: counseling high school students with spring fever, coaching the girls' tenth grade softball team, and finding every warbler species during spring migration. But when his mother discovers a body while they bird together on Mother's Day, disturbing items get added to Bob's seasonal list, among them murder, gambling addictions, dirty politics and controversial land deals. And then there's that possibility - thanks to one of his students - that he might be wearing an orange jumpsuit while he makes license plates in the state pen. In this second outing of the Bob White Birder Murder Mystery series, Bob quickly finds himself chasing more than warblers as he searches for a killer who's even closer to home than he realizes.
