Reviews

  • 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
  • A deeply mesmerising memoir of forensic pathology. Human and fascinating

    Nigella Lawson
  • 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
