How to Solve a Murder: True Stories from a Life in Forensic Medicine


As gripping as it is gruesome, How to Solve a Murder is a fascinating insight into the career of a pathologist told by experts in the field. Includes a foreword from Dr Richard Shepherd, bestselling author of Unnatural Causes. Fractured skulls. Gas masks. Brain buckets. Not your typical workspace, but for forensic scientist Derek and his secretary Pauline, it was just another day at the office. The husband and wife duo have been behind some of the world’s most pioneering forensic science techniques. Their work has played a pivotal role in extremely high-profile cases across the years, putting murderers behind bars, discovering causes of seemingly inexplicable freak accidents and salvaging victims of tragic disasters. While the business of unnatural deaths may not be the most romantic of trades, it’s also how Derek and Pauline’s unusual love story began. After meeting on the job, the inseparable pair became a force to be reckoned with, unfailingly cracking cases one body part at a time. Warmly recalled and brilliantly told, this must-read will teach you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about death and life, and all their brilliant peculiarities. Although, be warned: it’s not one for the faint-hearted.
