[Denne fantastiske bog er desværre ikke oversat til dansk - men det bliver den forhåbentlig]
Caught up in bed, sweating, croaking and dizzy, I have at least had fantastic company. I have caught up with the second half of a marvelous book, 200 page-turning pages without dozing off once.
M.R. Hall, The Coroner (2009)
This legal thriller is one of the best I have read for a long time. A book which deserves a coherent, enthusiastic, well-written review - and here we are, me and my flue!
The book certainly deserves five stars:
One for the fantastic plot: the new coroner who will not just close her eyes.
One for the engaging and credible characters, especially 42-year-old Jenny Cooper who thought her new position as a coroner would be peaceful and give her time to get on with her life after a divorce and a mental break-down.
One for the environment: the legal setting is good and convincing, Jenny´s new home near Tintern Abbey is even better.
One for the ending: no spoilers, go and read the book!
One for keeping me awake for four hours.
And now you will probably want to read a proper review - go to Maxine, reviewing the book on Euro Crime, the very kind friend who sent me this wonderful book.
