Summary

The huge and powerful hawk dominated the scene. Its talons pierced the woman’s flesh, and the beak pointed towards her eyes....

The sight is a particularly horrible shock for George Palmer-Jones, ornithologist and amateur detective.

An old friend of Eleanor Masefield, a beautiful and charming widow, he is staying with his wife, Molly, at Eleanor’s family-run hotel. On the other hand, Molly Palmer-Jones feels that Eleanor was more of a black than a merry widow - a ruthless manipulator of all those caught in her far-reaching web.

Is Molly a little jealous, or is she right? And will she be in time to prevent another death?
