Publisher's Summary

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....

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!

Another ripping yarn

I love this series and this is no exception - a very good story, brilliantly narrated by Sian Thomas. Jenny Cooper is a coroner and this time she investigates an apparent suicide. With that as a hook you can imagine how determined she is to find out why the young man committed suicide - if he did. The plot is a little bit exaggerated although there is an interesting explanation by the author of the background to the book. If you have read the others in the series this is an excellent addition, but if you have not I absolutely recommend that you start at the beginning of the series - all of which are very good listens.
