E 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 headsBut a life in death bearing witness to some of humanity's darkest corners exacts a price and Shepherd doesn't flinch from counting the cost to him and his family. There s something indescribably fascinating about what comes after death And I don t mean the whole heavenhell scenario but what happens during the inevitable breakdown of our bodies the processed falling apart of that place we inhabit before some event some failure or some person takes it from us As a forensic pathologist Dr Richard Shepherd has dealt with death of all types from everyday natural passing to murder sprees like that at Hungerford Sounds good right However this suffers on two fronts The first being that it s not enough about the cases I find the dead interesting the drama of the doctor s life much less so and there s far too much of the latter My fault for not checking the focus but honestly his struggles with his private life were not what I wanted to read about The book sets a very emotional tone and it was hard going Pretty uickly I decided to skip anything personal and just read about his work However this leads to the second problem the basic and uninspiring nature of the storytelling The book has no flow it s stilted and manages to make even the sections dealing with murder a little bit tedious Sadly he is not one of those people who can transfer their exceptional talent into an engaging taleSo if you want a medical memoir with a strong dose of personal reflection and emotional contemplation this may be for you but my recommendation would be to read All That Remains A Life in Death Unfortunately this one is not nearly as interesting as it soundsARC via Netgalley The Art of Loving shut cases on their headsBut a life in death bearing witness to Jack Kerouac some of humanity's darkest corners exacts a price and Shepherd doesn't flinch from counting the cost to him and his family.

Richard Shepherd Ú 1 REVIEW

As the UK's top forensic pathologist Dr Richard Shepherd has spent a lifetime uncovering the secrets of the dead When death is sudden or unexplained it falls to Shepherd to establish the cause Each post mortem is a detective story in its own right and Shepherd has performed over 23000 of them Through his skill dedication and insight Dr Shephe. Because of the blurb and publicity I expected a book about Dr Richard Shepherd s career as the leading forensic pathologist in the UK So naturally when I get lyrical passages about soaring in a Cesna over Hungerfood I m thinking this book isn t for me When the author writes in detail about his childhood and the women in his father s life I m thinking I didn t sign up for this but it s an easy read and the writing improves after the initial overly descriptive prose Then just like that everything makes sense why the Cesna why the family so I m really into it I ve never had a book take so long to explain itself beforeThe book is an autobiography with a dual concentration of the author s home life and his professional life In both real life and the book he devotes far too much time and energy to his professional life He gets told so too but he can t get a grip on that I think a lot of men are like that and it s the women that hold the marriage and family together until eventually the children leave home and it all falls apart Dr Shepherd s case file as a forensic pathologist is very interesting Sometimes though he gets a bee in his bonnet as in a court case and it s a he said she said for many many pages it s a bit tedious but like everything else in the book you wait a while and you see why he s written it like that It s a very unusual way to put a book togetherI was most interested in his work after the Al aeda terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center He went to New York and worked there He said that one of the prime motivations to identify all the bodiesparts was that even though it would have been easier to have a mass grave they knew that the families of the victims could not bear the idea of these loved ones being buried along with the terrorists who d murdered them He flew out to Bali for the night club massacre also funded by Al aeda and the difference between the uiet dignity of the US with the bodies in refrigerated trucks neatly lined up the US flag and flowers at the entrance and Bali a single refrigerated truck and all the bodies bundled into bags and laid in the shade with ice from the supermarkets keeping them coolHe also wrote about Princess Diana s death I didn t know she didn t look very badly injured and was talking until she passed out and later died from a very very small rip in a vein in a lung that bled out inside her So it was interesting And when he got PTSD from the massacres from being accused himself of not being diligent over a baby s death he had been charges that hung over him for a long time before being dismissed I could see how his mental issues went right back to his childhoodSo all in all it the sum of its parts is 3 stars But taken as a whole it is an enjoyable and enlightening 5 star read and Dick Shepherd is a really nice guy and those who have him as a friend are really luckyTea why the book cannot be Americanised view spoiler Every discussion with the detectives or lawyers starts off with them all sitting down for a cup of tea If there is a break they have tea And afterwards they either have another cup of tea or go down to the pub for a pint You couldn t swap tea for coffee for a US market as they d all be buzzing on caffeine so much did they drink hide spoiler
