Staring Death in the Eye: Unnatural Causes

Pathologist Dr Richard Shepherd in conversation with Paul

In conversation with international bestselling crime writer Dr Paul Carson, Richard Shepherd will take you into his world where he stares death in the eye.

As the UK’s leading forensic pathologist, Dr Richard Shepherd has faced serial killers, natural disasters, ‘perfect murders’ and freak accidents, all in the pursuit of the truth. And while he’s been involved in some of the most high-profile cases of recent times, it’s often the less well-known encounters that prove the most perplexing, intriguing and even bizarre. In or out of the public eye, his evidence has put killers behind bars, freed the innocent and turned open-and-shut cases on their heads.

In his bestselling memoir, Richard Shepherd gives a unique insight into a remarkable profession, and above all a powerful and reassuring testament to lives cut short.
