The Coroner – M R Hall

I recently found out that I had missed this, the first book of the Jenny Cooper series and was debating whether it would be worth going back after reading the second and third installments. It was. I guess we can than Hollywood for inventing the prequel idea so it worked just like that.

This introduction to our heroine is a terrific read. We get to meet Jenny as she sets up in a new job (and a new house following her marriage breakdown). She has taken up her role in a position where all the blokes are chummy and perhaps help each other out a bit too much. Jenny has become pretty much addicted to prescription drugs to help her maintain a professional facade, but has guts, determination and a big social conscience.

Her tenacity and dedication to the truth will get her through, but it is a very bumpy ride. Jenny Cooper has been firmly established as my favorite crime fighter. I just hope there are people like her in the justice system.
