Review of Forty Years of Murder, by Keith Simpson

Abstract:     
Professor Keith Simpson's career as a highly distinguished British forensic pathologist took him to the scenes of many of the most sensational homicides and criminal trials of recent decades. He pioneered forensic dentistry, and was prominent in alerting physicians and others to the reality of the battered baby syndrome. The first Professor of Forensic Medicine at the University of London, he has written a standard textbook on his subject and has edited Taylor's Medical Jurisprudence, a basic work of reference of the British medical profession.

It is hard to fault an autobiography for appearing opinionated and egotistical, but the author seems to approach a number of the contentious cases in which he appeared more as an advocate for the opinion he formed than as an analyst.
