Of course, someone has to investigate the how and why of unnatural or suspicious death. But just how much can be discovered amongst the human aftermath of disasters such as the King’s Cross fire or terrorist atrocities such as the Hyde Park bombing is an eye-opener.
The book doesn’t tell us much about how the man himself lived privately. But the professional skills and systematic methodology he applied, often under what must have been appalling circumstances, is inspiring.
Almost as a side issue, the book throws interesting light on the death of Detective Constable John Fordham. DC Fordham was killed at the mansion of Kenny Noye in the course of the Brinks Mat bullion robbery investigation. Before reading Stern’s account readers might like to read Wensley Clarkson’s book, Kenny Noye; Public Enemy Number 1.
The book is well written and very informative. There are many technical terms, as one would expect of a book of this nature, and the case histories are often brief, but I would recommend the book without hesitation.
