Reviews

Daily Express

 

"..a terrific series, meticulously researched, sharply plotted and peopled with sympathetic characters"

Financial Times

"It’s a tribute to the author’s skill that I read this book supposing it to be autobiographical… He really gets under the skin of his heroine"

Literary Review

 

"A substantial and satisfying novel which adroitly combines the personal and political into an engrossing narrative"

The Independent

 

"Hall shows with aplomb that a coroner is just as able to become a detective (and, in this case, advance into the world of spooks) as the forensic pathologists of Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs"

Sunday Times Culture

 

"…intelligent and intricate, and grips from beginning to end."

Woman and Home

 

"This big, well-executed debut novel by screenwriter and producer M R Hall has meaty characters and a chewy plot in the Lynda La Plante style"

Guardian

 

"…strongly characterized, The Coroner hold attention from the first to the last."

Daily Express

 

"M R Hall … writes convincingly and compellingly of the difficulties facing anybody who cares to challenge a crushing and often corrupt system in an attempt to establish the truth."

Daily Mail

 

"A brilliant, original and gripping crime novel – I can’t wait for M R Hall’s next one!" 

Sophie Hannah

 

"Unputdonwnable debut introducing a fantastic feisty and convincingly flawed heroine" 

Woman and Home Magazine

 

"With its strong, likeable heroine and gritty themes, this is a compelling debut"

Sainsbury’s Magazine

 

"Full marks to Hall … he's come up with a highly-original central character who allows him to take a refreshingly-new slant on the crime fiction genre. I reckon she's (Jenny Cooper) going to be around for quite some time." 

Yorkshire Evening Post

 

"M R Hall has created a wonderful heroine in a genre we haven’t seen before." 

Lynda La Plante
