This book really was a surprise. Written in the 1950s it described the cases and activities around a group of pathologists, forensic pathologists and the criminal and legal world. Unlike its sometimes unbelievable american counterparts this is down to earth and happens to real people! give it a try!
I found this very dated: I know it was set back in the 50s (I believe) and around 'my' time, but I did squirm with the narrative and the dialogue!
this story covers three crimes and their outcomes. the courtroom scenario at the end was good.
I enjoyed jonathan keeble's performance of the story bringing the characters to life.
looking forward to listening to grounds for appeal.
I thnk I have said it all in the title but I will just add that the storyline never really took off, it was a bit like cycling in Holland, flat with interesting scenery.
