Engrossing, a haunting page-turner. A book I could not put down' The Times

'An absolutely brilliant book.

I really recommend it, I don't often say that but it's fascinating' Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2'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

_Meet the forensic pathologist, Dr Richard Shepherd. He solves the mysteries of unexplained or sudden death. He's a detective in his own right. And he has one, ultimate and pressing question to answer: How did this person die?Unnatural Causes is an unputdownable record of an extraordinary life, a unique insight into a remarkable profession, and above all a powerful and reassuring testament to lives cut short.

_Dr Shepherd has faced serial killers, natural disaster, 'perfect murders' and freak accidents, all in the pursuit of the truth. And while he's been involved in some of the most high-profile cases of recent times, it's often the less well-known encounters that prove the most perplexing, intriguing and even bizarre. In or out of the public eye, his evidence has put killers behind bars, freed the innocent and turned open-and-shut cases on their heads.

But a life in death, bearing witness to some of humanity's darkest corners, exacts a price and Shepherd doesn't flinch from counting the cost to him and his family. The dead do not hide the truth and they never lie.

Through me the dead can speak . . . 'Puts the reader at his elbow as he wields the scalpel' Guardian 'Fascinating, gruesome yet engrossing' Richard and Judy, Daily Express'Heart-wrenchingly honest' Professor Sue Black, author of All That Remains'Fascinating, insightful, candid, compassionate' Observer
