  • "One might expect [this book] to be a grim read but it absolutely isn’t. I found it invigorating!"

    Andrew Marr, BBC Radio 4 'Start the Week'
  • "Black’s utterly gripping account of her life and career as a professor of anatomy and forensic anthropology manages to be surprisingly life-affirming. As she herself says, it is “as much about life as about death”."

    PD Smith, Guardian
  • "An engrossing memoir ... an affecting mix of the personal and professional."

    Erica Wagner, Financial Times
  • "A model of how to write about the effect of human evil without losing either objectivity or sensitivity ... Heartening and anything but morbid... Leaves you thinking about what kind of human qualities you value, what kinds of people you actually want to be with."

    Rowan Williams, New Statesman
  • "For someone whose job is identifying corpses, Sue Black is a cheerful soul ... All That Remains feels like every episode of Silent Witness, pre-fictionalized. Except, you know, really good."

    Helen Rumbelow, The Times
