Silent Witnesses by Nigel McCrery is sub-titled ‘The Story of Forensic Science’. I bought it on the basis of a review. It’s OK but perhaps I’m not as interested in the subject as I thought I might be! I did find the case studies a bit wearing – murders, rapes, bodies and gory details etc. I was losing interest and I skipped the entire, penultimate chapter on poisons. Not for me.
