Summary

After starting their private forensic consultancy, Doctor Richard Pryor and forensic biologist Angela Bray have now become firmly established. A bizarre suicide in a remote Welsh farm starts them on a new investigation, which is followed by an unusual request from the War Office. And when a Cotswold veterinary surgeon is charged with poisoning his ailing wife, can Pryor's expert evidence save him from the gallows?

An excellent surprise

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!

Embarrassed

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!

good story

Any additional comments?

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.

Easy listen - not terribly exciting

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.
