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…

I'd probably try another
Add more gritty content
Excellent English accents!
No, the story didnt really have any where to go to
Not really, due to the reader
ANY man with an American accent. She probably is perfect for European listeners, but in America we need a Scott Brick.
Perhaps its me, but my American ears have trouble following a pronounced British accent. The only way I can follow the narration is to concentrate absolutely, to the exclusion of anything else. Since I normally do my work (I'm a bookbinder) while listening, I often lose the story and have to back track. In addition, her different voices are so close that I lose track of who is talking. Finally is my admitedly prejudiced opinion that women can't do men's voices (women, feel free to boo). Men have no trouble doing women's voices, but women seem to either growl or as in this case, don't even bother to make it distinct. Miss Thomas is probably charming and competent, but she has a limited range of distinct voices and all come out sounding the same.
