9781904034629: Awaking the Dead: The Memoirs of Britain's Top Forensic Scientist

The life of a forensic scientist isn't just confined to the lab. As Brian Heard reveals in this book, it is thrilling and sometimes terrifying work, and is certainly not for the fainthearted. Intelligence, nerve, and a strong stomach are essential. As a forensic scientist, Heard has been involved in some of the most high profile and brutal cases in criminal history over the last 38 years. When the Krays were active during the 60s, Heard was in charge of finding which gangs were responsible for which bodies. When the notorious Triads made a hit, it was his skill and keen eye that established who the culprits were. The tales include a mixture of sadness, human tragedy, violence, guile, cunning, and sheer stupidity that take the reader on a nail-biting journey through a side of the underworld that few ever see. Written in language anyone can understand, the book details the techniques that are used to fight crime.
