Description: In his 30-year career as a provincial pathologist in New Zealand, Dr Cynric Temple-Camp has accrued many cases most unsuitable for discussion at the dinner table. They range from the infamous Lundy case, to instances of spontaneous combustion, exhumations and drug mules, with each case receiving the same respectful care and attention required to determine the cause of death.

Compelling, surprising but never macabre, this is an easy-to-read, informative book chronicling just what goes on when the worst happens.

Comments from BDS Reviewers:

"Anyone interested in murder, forensics, crime, death and pathology will find this book fascinating."

"It's very interesting to read what happens before a coronial investigation into death."

"A good chatty style – very easy to read."

"The book has an interesting range of cases – no two are alike."

"Some of the cases will be particularly familiar to readers, especially the Lundy case."

"I read crime novels for relaxation so it was really interesting to get the 'low down' from a pathologist."
