Hardback. The author gives a compelling account of the trial-making and breaking clues he uncovered during his long career as one of London's key forensic pathologists. Following in the footsteps of pioneers such as Bernard Spilsbury and Keith Simpson, it was Bowen who was the first to identify the true nature of the 'chicken bones' found in Dennis Nilsen's drain after a complaint by his neighbour, and it was Bowen who led the investigation into the grisly contents of the black rubbish bags found in Nielsen's home. In these extraordinary memoirs, the author recounts many of the famous and challenging cases he worked on, including the tragic Railway Murders of the 1980s; the unsolved London Nude Murders of the 1960s; the still-baffling death of Roberto Calvi, 'God's Banker', whose body was found hanging from Blackfriars Bridge; the frustrating PC Keith Blakelock case; and the mystery surrounding the apparent Second World War defector Rudolf Hess. Illus., Bibliog. and Index. 260pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Nr. F. in nr. f. dw.
