In Two Minds
Harry Probert-Lloyd, a young barrister forced home from London by encroaching blindness, has begun work as the acting coroner of Teifi Valley with solicitor's clerk John Davies as his assistant.
When a faceless body is found on an isolated beach, Harry must lead the inquest. But his dogged pursuit of the truth begins to ruffle feathers. Especially when he decides to work alongside a local doctor with a dubious reputation and experimental theories considered radical and dangerous. Refusing to accept easy answers might not only jeopardise Harry's chance to be elected coroner permanently but could, it seems, implicate his own family in a crime.
"I really enjoyed this book: Alis Hawkins has thoroughly researched the time and place, and has done a wonderful job in evoking and creating an atmospheric mystery."

“A highly recommended novel for those who adore crime thrillers with in-depth narration and well developed characters.”
Syllables of Swathi
“It was a novel you don’t want to miss, with its fascinating characters, it’s landscape and best of all its twisty convoluted story. Hawkins has left me hoping book three will follow very soon!”
