An Airbus A380 aeroplane crash lands on the Severn Estuary killing all on board. When the body of a sailor is washed up, near the wreckage of the plane, local coroner, Jenny Cooper, is asked to investigate, that particular death. However, as soon as the investigation starts, it appears that there are people in powerful places, that don't want the truth to be dug up.
This is the first novel that I have read in the Jenny Cooper series. Overall, I found the story a decent enough read. The characterisation was good, and I thought the plot was interesting throughout.
