Two young British students, Nazim Jamal and Rafi Hassan, vanish without a trace. The police write them off as runaways, but seven years later, Nazim’s grief stricken mother is still unconvinced. Jenny Cooper is finally settling into her role as Coroner for the Severn Valley; the ghosts of her past banished to the sidelines once more. But as an inquest into Nazim’s disappearance gets underway, the stink of corruption and conspiracy becomes clear. As the pressure from above increases, a code of silence is imposed and events begin to spiral out of control, pushing Jenny to the breaking point. For how could she have known that by unravelling the mysteries of the disappeared, she would begin to unearth her own buried secrets? Download and start listening now!

    " The book I'm read from iBooks is titled The Innocent (A coroner) by the same author M R Hall; it was a great short making me want more of the Jenny Cooper series :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evelyn | 9/30/2013

    " Rather than the thriller I expected, this book was more of a British crime novel--complex and slower-paced. It wasn't a bad read, but I have so many books that I wanted to read more right now. Will probably come back to it someday "

    " A good second in the series, was a bit slow st times which required some of the one off characters inn this story a bit flat. Less nicely into the rest of the series which I will pick up and read. "

    " I thought it was fascinating how many seemingly random things were suddenly important by the end. I also really like Jenny Cooper because of her flaws, not in spite of them. "

    " Darn!! Not only did I not realize this was a second in a series, after I resolved to just read this one because I like Jenny the coroner, they included an epilogue with a total cliff hanger. What tzorris! "
