Coroner Jenny Cooper investigates…. An unlikely suicide or a deadly conspiracy? When Bristol Coroner Jenny Cooper investigates the fatal plunge of a man from a motorway bridge, she little suspects that it has any connection with the sudden death of a friend’s thirteen year old daughter from a deadly strain of meningitis. But as Jenny pieces together the dead man’s last days, she’s drawn into a mystery whose dark ripples stretch across continents and back through decades.
In an investigation which will take her into the sinister realms of unbridled human ambition and corrupt scientific endeavour, Jenny is soon forced to risk the love and lives of those closest to her, as a deadly race to uncover the truth begins….

This is a brilliant intelligent thriller, offering complex believable characters and excellent plotting around contemporary issues. The narration by Sian Thomas is superb - she really inhabits the characters, making each one distinct and credible. It's an excellent combination of pacy writing and vivid narration.

Another absorbing story!

M R Hall has come up with another original story, cleverly plotted and wonderfully brought to life by the excellent Sian Thomas.

Jenny Cooper is a bit of an infuriating heroine at times, always jumping in her car and racing off to follow up leads, with no time to give reasons to her (annoyingly priggish) Officer, Alison.

Do Coroners really do this? No matter, it makes for an entertaining yarn!
