A haggard hawk is a hawk in full plumage
Nathan Hawk, a high ranking police officer, is ‘required to retire’ from the force. That’s a very British way of saying he was sacked. Apparently he broke his commanding officer’s jaw and earned the undying respect of his colleagues. He goes to live in the countryside, just outside London where he spends the first few months drinking too much, arguing with neighbours and stressing about his grown up children. And wondering what to do with the rest of his life.
What are his options? How about writing his memoirs, or visiting his far flung kids, maybe even standing for the Parish Council? None of those things offers quite the buzz of catching killers, something he was really good at. His tally, when he left the police service, was thirty-four.
Just as he’s about to go mad with boredom a new friend in the village does him the courtesy of getting himself murdered. It’s a tragedy, of course, but for Hawk it’s a lifesaver.
And it comes with the added bonus of the local police not wanting him to interfere…
