A methodical, diligent, and exceptionally bright police detective, William South is an avid birdwatcher and trusted figure in his small town on the rugged Kentish coast. He also lives with the deeply buried secret that, as a child in Northern Ireland, he may have killed a man. When a fellow birdwatcher is found murdered in his remote home, South's world flips. The culprit seems to be a drifter from South's childhood; the victim was the only person connecting South to his early crime. As South investigates, he must conceal his own connections to the victim, and worse yet, now a troubled, vivacious new female sergeant from London has been assigned to work with him.
