True crime, Prose: non-fiction

Dr Iain West is Britain's foremost pathologist. His job is to carry out examinations of victims of fatal crimes, accidents and those who have died in mysterious circumstances. This text describes some of his cases, including the shooting of WPC Yvonne Fle

A comprehensive and fascinating record of some of the most famous and controversial case of his illustrious career, this book reflects the status that forensic pathology now commands in the field of criminal investigation.
With detailed reference to acts of interenational terrorism, war crimes, major disasters, serial murder and domestic violence, crime journalist Chester Stern explores how Dr West helps police and juries understand the full horror of such incidents, how fresh interpretations of existing evidence increasingly support damage claims by victim's relatives, and how, in the strange circumstances of Robert Maxwell's apparentl drowning, he uncovered crucial clues which put a whole new complexion on the mystery of the tycon's death.
Probing death in many bizarre forms, this is a compelling, chilling but never lurid insight into the work of a man for whom death is a way of life.
