When lawyer Jenny Cooper is appointed Severn Vale District Coroner, she’s hoping for a quiet life and space to recover from a traumatic divorce, but the office she inherits from the recently deceased Harry Marshall contains neglected files hiding dark secrets and a trail of buried evidence. Could the tragic death in custody of a young boy be linked to the apparent suicide of a teenage prostitute and the fate of Marshall himself? Jenny’s curiosity is aroused. Why was Marshall behaving so strangely before he died? What injustice was he planning to uncover? And what caused his abrupt change of heart? In the face of powerful and sinister forces determined to keep both the truth hidden and the troublesome coroner in check, Jenny embarks on a lonely and dangerous one woman crusade for justice which threatens not only her career but also her sanity.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This big, well-executed debut novel from screenwriter and producer M. R. Hall has meaty characters and a chewy plot in the Lynda La Plante style…Hall expertly prevents the plot from teetering over into implausibility.”

    The Guardian (UK)

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Zelda | 2/19/2014

    " A deeply flawed main character and totally believable. Very engrossing how she refuses to give up searching for more evidence after she finds unsatisfactory procedures and verdicts carried out by her predecessor coroner. Glad to see that this is the first of a series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jack | 2/3/2014

    " Jenny Cooper takes up her new post as coroner, only to discover unresolved problems which her predecessor was dealing with just before his untimely death. She finds herself up against some influential people as well as her own psychological problems. A well-crafted story with believable characters. I shall definitely be looking out for more of the Jenny Cooper books. "

    " Not bad but not great either. I found the central character pretty unlikeable and that's where I think I failed with this book "
