Coroner Jenny Cooper returns in her most explosive journey yet . . .Coroner Jenny Cooper investigates . . . A tragic accident or a terrible crime? When Flight 189 plunges into the Severn Estuary, Coroner Jenny Cooper finds herself handling the case of a lone sailor whose boat appears to have been sunk by the stricken plane, and drawn into the mysterious fate of a ten year-old girl, Amy Patterson, a passenger on 189, whose largely unmarked body is washed up alongside his. While a massive and highly secretive operation is launched to recover clues from the wreckage, Jenny begins to ask questions the official investigation doesn't want answered. How could such a high tech plane - virtually impregnable against human error - fail? What linked the high powered passengers who found themselves on this ill-fated flight? And how did Amy Patterson survive the crash, only to perish hours later? Under pressure from Amy's grieving mother, and opposed by those at the very highest levels of government, Jenny must race against time to seek the truth behind this terrible disaster, before it can happen again . . .

A great book if you like to be challenged with a lot of clues. I really liked the character of the coroner and thought she added a lot to the story.

Love this series. In this story, Jenny Cooper, Coroner, is dealing with a passenger airliner which apparently has just fallen from the sky. As always she up against the powers that be, trusting to thwart her at every turn. But this time she also has to contend with international espionage.

Suspense that keeps you intrigued up to the last pages. Would definitely look for the author's other books. Not recommended for reading before boarding a plane, especially the newer models.

Very good. A lot of information about flying - tricky for those who are not keen on taking airplanes - like me.
