    On the run. Accused of murder—with no way out.

    Coroner Fenway Stevenson is accused of a homicide she didn't commit—but all the evidence points to her. Staying one step ahead of the police, she unearths one secret after another. But the victim’s trail leads her to a thirty-year-old homicide—and Fenway's mother was the prime suspect. With the body count rising and the killer still on the loose, can Fenway find the truth and prove her innocence before she becomes the next victim?

    Praise for The Accused Coroner

    "Be warned: to read one Fenway mystery is to want to read them all. If you love page-turning, unputdownable mysteries, then Ardoin is the real deal."

    —Mark Stay, host of The Bestseller Experiment podcast


    “From the first chapter to the last, The Accused Coroner deftly twines Fenway’s current life with her mother’s mysterious past, and keeps you guessing the entire time. This series has been getting better with every book—be prepared to stay up all night!”

    —Tess Baytree, author of The Penelope Standing Mysteries


    “Fenway is fantastic, and The Accused Coroner is her best adventure yet. Ardoin has done it again with another edge-of-your-seat page-turner.”

    —Jack Benton, author of The Slim Hardy Mysteries
