Summary
What he didnt know was that Southwark, operating in near-Victorian conditions, was a hotbed of corruption. Attendants stole from the dead, funeral homes paid bribes, and there was a lively trade in stolen body parts and recycled coffins. Set in the fascinating pre-DNA and psychological profiling years of 198587, this memoir tells a gripping and gruesome tale, with a unique insight into a world of death most of us dont ever see. Peter managed pathologists, oversaw post mortems and worked alongside Scotland Yards Murder Squad including on the case of the serial killer, the Stockwell Strangler. This is a thrilling tale of murder and corruption in the mid-1980s, told with insight and compassion
