I'm a Coroner. I spend my life laying things to rest . . .

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.

    " slow start, interesting story and satisfying end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Review by Melinda Elizabeth | 8/8/2013

    " This was a fairly bland procedural crime novel... I assume the author is setting up storylines for further novels, but it would have been nice to tie up some of the loose ends. There was just too much whinging and dragging, boring stories in this book to be good. If it had stuck with the coronial part, and cut out the pill popping lead character it might have been a little more tolerable than it was. The characters were one dimensional and I didn't really care what happened to any of them. Don't know if I'd stick with the author if they were to write any other books. "

    " This book has many twists and turns to keep the reader guessing, but I felt that the references to the prescription drugs she was taking and her state of mind made me wonder how she was able to conduct her duties.it was a bit over the top. The book would have been a lot more interesting without her personal problems "

    " Found this book a bit of a slog at first, and it took a third attempt to really get into it, but once I did I found it pretty good. "
