In this new edition the text has been thoroughly updated and is complemented by the addition of over 200 new color illustrations.

The fourth edition continues to be the definitive international resource for those in training and in practice, covering all aspects of the medico-legal autopsy, including the cause and time of death, interpretation of wounds and every other facet of the investigation of a fatality.

The contents are intended to lead the pathologist – and in some countries, the non-pathologist – through the procedures needed in the examination of a body found under obscure, suspicious or even criminal circumstances.

Although police procedures and the habits of pathologists may vary from country to country, the philosophy and techniques presented in this book offer a guide to good practices that can be modified according to local circumstances.


  • Provides highly readable, authoritative content with an emphasis on observation and evidence-based practice

  • Includes a robust collection of drawings, photographs and other figures to elucidate concepts described in the text

  • Guides and cautions the reader throughout the book on the limitations of interpretation
