Spontaneous combustion and exhumation, drug mules and devil worshippers, a gruesome killing beneath the Palmerston North Airport control tower, a mysterious death in a historic homestead, a firsthand dissection of the infamous Mark Lundy case...

In The Cause of Death, provincial pathologist Dr. Cynric Temple-Camp lifts the lid on the most unusual stories of death and murder he's encountered during his 30-year career.

Love it!

I personally love true crime, and have always wanted to hear the pathologists side of things. This book does that! And it's not a constant droning on. The author is actually telling you a story. I love the pace as well. Gets right to the story without skipping anything or over explaining. Would recommend!

A definite must!

This was one of the best books I have ever listened to (or read). I felt it was easy for someone with a non-science background to follow but was still enthralling for someone like myself who has a science background. I listened to it in one go it was that good and will listen again.
