Product description

Review

Unnatural Causes gives a sense of the toll that dealing with so many dead bodies takes. It's a very human book that looks at the cases he has been involved with, from the Hungerford massacre to the murder of Stephen Lawrence (The Times (Books of the Year, 2018))

One of the most fascinating books I have read in a long time. Engrossing, a haunting page-turner. A book I could not put down (The Times)

Fabulous . . . The UK's top pathologist investigating high-profile deaths such as that of Diana, Princess of Wales (The Sunday Post)

Puts the reader at his elbow as he wields the scalpel (Guardian)

Insightful, candid and compassionate (Observer)

Fascinating, gruesome yet engrossing (Richard and Judy, Daily Express)

Heart-wrenchingly honest (Professor Sue Black, author of All That Remains)

Darkly fascinating (Daily Mirror)

Partly an autobiography, but also a love letter to pathology. It's dignified and graceful and painfully honest about the human and emotional cost of so much time with the dead. Insightful, moving and mesmerising (Marylebone Journal)

This book holds within its pages the story of a life told with honesty, and this is partly why it is such a pleasure to read. A fascinating autobiography. Unputdownable. (Live Ribble Valley)

Book Description

A real-life Silent Witness from one of Britain's foremost Forensic Pathologists.
