Would definitely recommend this book. Dr Shepherd seems like a great man and I respect him very much after reading this. I feel like I played a small but important role in his story just by reading this book. I’m so glad I did, I loved how clinical it was but also included personal life. Great book, 5 Stars.

I absolutely loved this book, despite the ‘big book fear’ i absolutely loved this one. i perhaps have an unhealthy interest in true crime but this left me satisfied that i’d understood the complexities of the cases from a pathological perspective. Admittedly a little graphic at times but i fear without this the enormity of Dr Shepard’s work and career would be lost on the reader. thoroughly interesting and enjoyable.

Read this book if you're looking for an insider's account of the stressful life of a forensic pathologist, a description of the daily highs and lows and the extraordinary ups and downs. It's THE book to read if you're a true crime fan.

A wonderful insight into the world of forensic pathologist and the toll it can take on the living. Dr Shepherd is a beautiful writer, balancing the medical technicalities with an empathy that hits deep.
