  • The reluctant coroner

    A good read - kept me guessing till the end - couldn’t put it down till I’d finished

  • Gotta love Fenway

    Compelling characters and a fast paced narrative: what’s not to like? Deftly described characters are at the heart of this story as we enter the world of a newly appointed coroner in a small town practically owned by her estranged father. An easy and satisfying read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Decent First Outing for New Heroine

    *****POSSIBLE SPOILERS ALERT***** This was the start of a potentially viable series, but still had a few "teething" problems. The story's protagonist, Fenway Stevenson was reasonably well drawn, although at times seemed to have coronial experience beyond her age and training. A couple of the lead characters, Migs and Dez were poorly drawn; I had no feel for their characters at all, and couldn't even picture their physical appearances. McVie was reasonably conceptualised, although somewhat of a typical cartoon cop; strong and wise, but with critical private flaws. (For Fenway to sleep with him after a mere couple of days contact was really beyond the pale for example.) Rachel's character could've been better realised too. It seemed at the start of the story she was going to be a major player and support to Fenway, but suddenly became a bit-player, vulnerable and confused. As for the plot line; a bit overly-contrived and disjointed along the way, with too many inconsistencies of character reactions from the players. Once again, Migs and Dez are the weak points. I often had to think whether or not each was a male or a female, as their "voices" were so neutral. The credibility of the story deteriorated somewhat along the way, as though the author wasn't quite sure of the machinations of his plot line or where it was going. A very weak point was Rachel's father Stotsky escaping from a fully manned police station, and instantly disappearing... what the? Overall, this was a decent first outing for Fenway (Ferris) Stevenson, but future stories will need a bit more tidying up plot-wise, and better, more detailed character developments. Recommended, with caveats.

    Thanks for your feedback!
