Publisher's Summary

Two young British students, Nazim Jamal and Rafi Hassan, vanish without a trace. The police write them off as runaways, but seven years later, Nazim's grief-stricken mother is still unconvinced.

Jenny Cooper is finally settling into her role as coroner for the Severn Valley; the ghosts of her past banished to the sidelines once more. But as an inquest into Nazim's disappearance gets underway, the stink of corruption and conspiracy becomes clear. As the pressure from above increases, a code of silence is imposed and events begin to spiral out of control, pushing Jenny to the breaking point. For how could she have known that by unravelling the mysteries of the disappeared, she would begin to unearth her own buried secrets?

After Book 1, one should have been titled The Disappointment

Dredging on and on, I struggled to finish it. Narration by Sian Thomas, as usual, is excellent, a shame that she had this mess to work with. Author’s storyline was very confusing, jumping all over the place with too many unlikeable characters. Far-fetched, its drawn-out courtroom drama dragged on that drove me up the wall. After Book 1, I was surprised at the letdown of Book 2. Try another book by M.R. Hall? I don’t know after this train wreck. I want my 15 minutes and 12 hours back. Returning this for a treasured credit. Whodunit and why? I don’t know nor do I care.

Unnecessary all together

This book seemed utterly unnecessary and pointless. Boring start to finnish. That is my opinion.

Great story teller

From time to time story gets slowed down with talking heads. But for the most part the plotting is well paced. There’s even surprise fast paced action that is a nice touch. Over all Hall knows her stuff.

Use should like women if you have a main character for a woman

The writer came across as angry at mothers given the ugly portrait he paints of motherhood and the general expectations. Not only does the main character have seemly unlikely personality it’s unreasonable to think she is even functional much less successful.

Main story ok but problems of heroine not interesting

The plight of the missing is somewhat interesting but I did not care for the domestic and personal drama of the heroine

torture

I love M R Hall but I am sick to death of this drug addicted woman who always comes across as a victim. I liked the first book. But this one was awful.

I didn’t enjoy this book at all. Lots of characters and hard to follow. I really liked the first book I read by this author.

6 on the Richter Scale

The story, in my opinion, was not as exciting as the last book written by M R Hall. Enjoyable all the same.
I know the next in the series will be excellent. Can't wait.
The Narrator Ms Thomas was excellent as usual!
She flows through languages and dialects with ease.
I think I said this same thing about the last book... you forget it's only one person narrating.
Thank you M R Hall, Sian Thomas and Audible

Amazing narrator

Sian Thomas is one of the best narrators I’ve ever heard. At first I thought the voice was Davina Porter.
