I'd highly recommend this book. Great story and great narration. This is definitly one of those books that I could listen to in one go. 7+ hours of gripping storyline. It's not fast paced at all but it really grabs your attention!

Martha Gunn is a coroner who must rule on deaths that have occurred as a result of bullying in a school yard. I would not call this a traditional mystery, so much as a study in the psychology of the minds and motives of the people involved, though there is an unknown regarding the deaths in a certain way.
Priscilla Master's strength as a writer is in the way she makes parallel stories have an emotional connection, as there are several mothers who are losing their sons for different reasons weaving in and out of the story. Actually, in truth, that is the heart of the story.
There are parts of this book left unfinished, so I assume it must pick up in the next episode. I felt unsatisfied not knowing if it just abruptly ends with parts unknown, or the reader is supposed to expect the unfinished parts to pick up in a future book.
Patricia Gallimore is an excellent narrator. She does such a wonderful job with different voices. Better with women's than men's, but that is not surprising. The reverse is true for most male narrators. She is rapidly becoming one of my favorite readers, and I am looking for more books she has narrated!
