Book Review – Unnatural Causes by Dr Richard Shepherd

`Book 1 of 2023!

I know I said I wasn’t going to have any New Years resolutions but one thing that I want to do this year is read more books and I have decided that I am going to review each one on my blog. My first book that I have read is Unnatural Causes by Dr Richard Shepherd. The story of Britain’s top Forensic Pathologist.

I am a huge lover of true crime and the human body. There is so much to learn and there are some incredible things to find out more our own bodies. Reading a book like this is both informative and interesting to read. The book follows Dr Richard Shepherd through his life – a memoir. From how it all began and how he actually got into the job to the last cases that he was involved in.

I would say that this book isn’t for the faint hearted. There is a lot of detail but it is a very very interesting read. I managed to finish it in 3 days. It is just shy of 400 pages and it is one of those books that you just can’t put down. There are many stories told in this book from Princess Diana to 9/11 to the death of Stephen Lawrence. Real life stories and part of the storie that you might not already know.

Unnatural Causes also touches on the impact of being a Forensic Pathologist and how it can affect the family of the person behind the job title. This book tells the tale that there is alot more behind the job then you first might see. A fantastic book on a real life person with one of the most important jobs in the care industry.

If you love true crime, the human body and don’t mind going in to detail of death and grief then I recommened this book. It shows the true life and how people in this job feel. The real life grief and loss.
