Product description


The role of the Coroner as detective is a unique perspective from which to play out a murder mystery and in Priscilla Master's able hands it is very successful. Martha Gunn is a well developed character who could easily feature in a series of books. Her relationship with Detective Inspector Randall looks like it might become interesting, although he is evidently married, and the antics at home with her two young children and the au pair balance out her intense concentration at her job. A very enjoyable read. --I Love a Mystery

Gunn is an engaging character, trying to maintain her private life, raising twins, with her public life as coroner of Shrewsbury. I really look forward to many more stories about her from Priscilla Masters. . . . Masters is also the author of 11 DI Joanna Piercy books set in Staffordshire, and three non-series books. For those of you, who like me, prefer to start at the beginning, here's your chance." --REVIEWINGTHEEVIDENCE.COM
