When the Dogs Don't Bark

When the Dogs Don't Bark

Kathy Reichs meets Fragile Lives in this fascinating and compelling memoir from the UK’s most eminent forensic scientist and some of the most fascinating criminal investigations she has worked on.

‘Finding the right answers is what forensic science is all about. What often matters even more, however, is asking the right questions.’

Never before has criminal justice rested so heavily on scientific evidence. With ever-more sophisticated and powerful techniques at their disposal, forensic scientists have an unprecedented ability to help solve even the most complex cases.

Angela Gallop has been a forensic scientist for over 40 years. After joining the Forensic Science Service, the first crime scene she attended was for a case involving the Yorkshire Ripper. As well as working on a wide range of cases in many countries around the world, she is now the most sought-after forensic scientist in the UK, where she has helped solve numerous high-profile cases, including the investigation that finally absolved the Cardiff Three the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path murders, and the killings of Stephen Lawrence, Damilola Taylor, Rachel Nickell and Roberto Calvi.

From the crime scene to the courtroom, When the Dogs Don’t Bark is the remarkable story of a life spent searching for the truth.

Fascinating
The Sun
Gallop's book is compelling
Daily Mirror
Offers a chilling glimpse into her life's work. The reader, too, becomes more gripped by the forensic details than the horrors of each case. Fascinating stuff.
Sunday Times
This is a fascinating scientific memoir of a life dedicated to uncovering the truth behind some of the most shocking crimes. And a book that will be essential reading for every aspiring crime writer.
Guardian
This book is rarely other than compelling and despite her modesty she comes across as admirable as well as likeable. She has a rare combination of qualities - a vivid imagination, a capacity for doggedly carrying out difficult and often mundane work and entrepreneurial nous. But what is even more rare is that she has deployed them in genuinely useful work for the public good
