Lethal Witness:Sir Bernard Spilsbury, Honorary Pathologist is the biography of Sir Bernard Spilsbury, the pioneer pathologist modestly dubbed 'the Father of Forensics' and 'the living embodiment of mythical Sherlock Holmes'.

Andrew charts his subject's rise and fall as media star, from the 1910 Crippen trial until his bizarre suicide in 1947, revealing how the 'Honorary Pathologist to the Home Office' put spin on the facts, embellished evidence and played games with the truth. Spilsbury's (often flawed) 'positive evidence' for the prosecution led to the conviction and execution of men innocent of murder.
