The compelling memoir from the UK's most eminent forensic scientist and some of the most fascinating criminal investigations she has worked on.
'The dead keep many secrets. Sometimes they are the only witness to a crime. But ask the right questions, and they will eventually reveal everything.'
Never before has criminal justice rested so heavily on scientific evidence. With ever more sophisticated and powerful techniques at their disposal, forensic scientists have the ability to make or break a case.
Angela Gallop has been a forensic scientist for over 40 years. After a brief spell studying sea slugs on the Isle of Wight, she joined the Forensic Science Service. Her first case was the Yorkshire Ripper. She is now the most sought after forensic scientist in the UK and has been involved in numerous high profile cases, including the Cardiff Three, the coastal path murders and the trail of Stephen Lawrence.
From the crime scene to the courtroom, WHEN THE DOGS DON'T BARK is the remarkable story of a life spent searching for the truth.
