Young Tom French was found dead, lying in a marsh on the Norfolk coast, with his head bashed in and his binoculars still around his neck. One of the best birders in England, Tom had put the village of Rushy on the birdwatching map. Everyone liked him. Or did they? George Palmer-Jones, an elderly birdwatcher who decided quietly to look into the brutal crime, discovered mixed feelings aplenty.

What would have made A Bird in the Hand better?

Some one different reading it he was too monotones I found I was struggling to listen to the story and not the drone of a flat voice

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I can't answer this I could not listen any longer

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Seán Barrett?
