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 10 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.

Before I read this boo...

Before I read this book I didn't know the specific role of a coroner, other than make a call on how someone died. This book detailed exactly their role and threw in a thrilling and intriguing story to boot. While I take plaudits and tabloid reviews on books with a bag of salt it seems everyone who did rave about the series of novels centered on Coroner Jenny Cooper got it bang on. There is very little to pick apart in the style and picture painting that is a credit to Hall. To reiterate that point, Hall is in fact a male writer writing about the inner thoughts and feelings of a female, and while I guess plenty novelists probably do write on the POV of the opposite sex, until I researched the author after I read the book I actually thought Hall was a Hall-ess. So to the story itself; an Airbus A380, the largest and safest plane in the air crashes into the Severn Estuary with complete loss of life and while the investigation falls under the jurisdiction of England's Ministry, the discovery of two bodies on the river bank fall into Cooper's. One, a very young girl who was a passenger is the only one of the entire complement to have a life jacket on, the second the sailor of a yacht which happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. By deduction, guesswork and luck Cooper finds out that the deaths of these two is not quite as straight forward as it seems, and when spooks from both sides of the Atlantic start showing up in an attempt to make Cooper do as they say, the plot thickens into the darker side of politics, terrorism and Government cover ups. I don't want to give anymore away than this as it would spoil the book somewhat as the conclusion was one I didn't (quite) see coming, and even though this books comes in sometime after novels there is no spoiling of continuation. Unfortunately there was the obligatory love interest however not to the extent where it smacked on Hollywood in that is was somewhat subtle. Top read, with a frighteningly plausible reality!

The Flight is the 4t...

"The Flight" is the 4th in the Jenny Cooper, coroner, series. An Airbus A380 crashes soon after take-off, killing 600 people. One passenger and an on-ground victim are in Cooper's jurisdiction, hence her involvement. LIKED - lots of interesting detail about the technology employed in current passenger jets, and the linked issue of pilot v. computer control. There is a very interesting set-up regarding Cooper's willingness "to play ball" with the larger investigation headed by Sir James Kendall, and these passages are well described including political pressures, consequences of stepping on the wrong toes, what the public needs to know vs. has the right to know, etc. but then that storyline seems to disappear until the very last pages. DISLIKES The last third of the book becomes a conspiracy lover's dream, with several plot sidetracks involving mysterious helicopters, explosive residue, coincidental deaths, threats, theories - the whole shebang. And our favorite spy agency is right in the middle of it. At this point the story went in a direction that did not hold my interest and I became anxious to just finish it. Didn't care much for Jenny, so I have no interest in reading other books to learn more about her. Took a look at plot summaries of the other three books and they didn't turn me on, doubt that I'll read more of this series.
