Now we know how it all started.
on 8 June 2017
I read The Coroner before reading this, and although it was pretty easy to get the gist of how Jenny became a Coroner, this book fills in a few gaps.
There is Jenny's boss in the child protection team who doesn't appear to trust her; or even like her for that matter. She certainly doesn't have Jenny's back when the plot unfolds, and appears to be looking after number one, herself. Neither does she appear to have much faith in the foster parents of the deceased girl. No wonder there is a shortage of professional people in this line of work. The only person who is in tune with Jenny is Boulter, the Coroner. He seems to be a decent chap.
This book is short, but explains everything we needed to know about how things came to be. I am looking really forward to reading the rest in this series.
