    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review When the Dogs Don t Bark follows forensic scientist Angela Gallop as she discusses her 40 year career within the profession What follows is an outline of a number of her most memorable cases interspersed with the history and development of forensic sciences within the UK and it s importance in the conviction, and defense, of individuals accused of a variety of crimes What immediately comes across while reading this is just how co I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review When the Dogs Don t Bark follows forensic scientist Angela Gallop as she discusses her 40 year career within the profession What follows is an outline of a number of her most memorable cases interspersed with the history and development of forensic sciences within the UK and it s importance in the conviction, and defense, of individuals accused of a variety of crimes What immediately comes across while reading this is just how complicated and varied forensic science is Far from standing in ditches collecting evidence from a crime scene, forensic scientists are wide reaching and branch into different specialties, from chemical, entomology, and one of the fastest growing digital forensics Often they must possess a thought process a little outside the box too by taking the extra step of recreating scenarios in labs to determine the most probably outcome and unlock the truth about what happened at the crime scene Two instances that stand out are when she mentions recreating the action of pushing a mop around a kitchen floor to exonerate a man accused of murder, and shooting a suspended pig carcass with a shotgun to discover where a specific shot went Other than a few glimmers of interesting cases and scenarios, this was a rather dry book to get through unfortunately A lot of time is spent describing the different kinds of forensic scientists there are, and the various techniques which are used It s very science based, and talks in great detail about methodologies There s also a lot of detail regarding Gallop s professional career and various businesses, however I found this could have been condensed, as it really took away from theinteresting cases I think the book was approached very much like a scientific report, using cases to back up Gallop s explanations of various techniques instead of letting the cases speak for themselves It feels almost clinical at times, and there s just no heart to the stories A lot of the cases she mentions, she states she doesn t know the outcome, and this got very frustrating at times as it came across as feeling unfinished and a little emotionless Perhaps someof her own personal background may have helped here, as we learnt a lot about her professional life but hardly anything personal.I do find the synopsis a little misleading, as there s no real depth to any of the memorable cases, sometimes they consisting of only a few paragraphs, and they are rather few and far between The bulk of the book is centred around Gallop s career and her explanations of what forensic scientists do In this regard it s meticulous in its presentation, but it wasn t what I was expecting at all Interesting if you want to expand your knowledge of what forensic science is, but don t go into it expecting lots of true crime stories or cases

    This is an intriguing read for both aspiring crime writers and those interested in the forensics associated with solving crime I found it packed with great, fascinating information, and I was loathe to put it down once I began As a law graduate, I know how much the criminal justice system now depends on hard evidence of the forensic sort, and Ms Gallop has dedicated her life to ensuring those who need to be incarcerated were However, not only is this filled with truly interesting insight into This is an intriguing read for both aspiring crime writers and those interested in the forensics associated with solving crime I found it packed with great, fascinating information, and I was loathe to put it down once I began As a law graduate, I know how much the criminal justice system now depends on hard evidence of the forensic sort, and Ms Gallop has dedicated her life to ensuring those who need to be incarcerated were However, not only is this filled with truly interesting insight into the life of a forensic scientist it also is written in a highly engaging and readable way The author indeed knows how to capture a readers attention It charts the developments and leaps forward made in this sphere over the years and applies the science to the evidence to show how conclusions are drawn Gallop has been part of putting away some notorious criminals, and it s exciting to hear her perspective on the cases she has been involved in I definitely feel this is written for the layperson and those who know nothing of the measures involved in such a job as it was written in an understandable, accessible fashion This is the memoir of a real life CSI analyst and it is nothing short of riveting.Many thanks to Hodder Stoughton for an ARC

    I paid top dollar to order this book when it first came out as it sounded so promising Unfortunately, it struggled to keep my attention and, as I slugged through the pages, I was weighed down with the politics and the name dropping It s hard to put into words what I didn t like about this book, but I think because it felt like a lecture rather than promising historical stories about forensic science, of its triumphs and it s limitations.

    I picked this up on a whim because it looked like it could be my sister s thing, and I never object torandom information about all kinds of topics Angela Gallop is a well known forensic scientist who has worked on several famous murder cases this is a sort of professional memoir, barely touching on her personal life, but digging into her opinions on forensic science, her part in expanding forensic science services in the UK and eventually worldwide, and her involvement sometimes tangent I picked this up on a whim because it looked like it could be my sister s thing, and I never object torandom information about all kinds of topics Angela Gallop is a well known forensic scientist who has worked on several famous murder cases this is a sort of professional memoir, barely touching on her personal life, but digging into her opinions on forensic science, her part in expanding forensic science services in the UK and eventually worldwide, and her involvement sometimes tangentially in various cases.It s a little bit of everything, really she talks about setting up her business, and that butts up against the horrible details of bloody murders and the less than fascinating references to board meetings It feels rather unfocused, sort of like there s the kitchen sink at all there s certainly plenty of interesting anecdotes, but the wealth of examples sometimes bogs down her theme Where you expect her to be contrasting two cases, they turn out to be remarkably similar and prove the same point It s not terribly written, but I d tighten it up ruthlessly and make her add in an organising theme.She does have something she wants to say about forensic science it scomplicated than you think, it needs funding, it needs to be impartial, and it needs to be done in context But those cautionary notes for the understanding of and the future of forensic science get a bit lost when suddenly she s complaining about the perils of borrowing money to start a company and how things could have gone wrong there The book s neither fish nor fowl it s not just about digging into the story behind investigating specific crimes, but it s so heavy on those details that it feels like maybe that was the original point.That said, the details are interesting and her style isn t bad, just a bit flabby I mildly enjoyed it, but felt it could ve beenimpactful if it knew what it was

    While there were a few moments in this book that made me audibly wow particularly regarding discovery of important forensic clues and use of interesting techniques I ultimately found reading this book dry and disjointed The timeline of the author s career, accented by significant cases, felt mixed up and she frequently and unnecessarily repeats herself throughout the book I felt that the blurb was misleading and, like other readers, expectedcases and less business technical discuss While there were a few moments in this book that made me audibly wow particularly regarding discovery of important forensic clues and use of interesting techniques I ultimately found reading this book dry and disjointed The timeline of the author s career, accented by significant cases, felt mixed up and she frequently and unnecessarily repeats herself throughout the book I felt that the blurb was misleading and, like other readers, expectedcases and less business technical discussion outside of the casework.The author did make some incredibly significant points related to the study and practice of forensic science, which I think anyone in a career related to the justice system should hear but, in my opinion, the book could have benefitted from some further editing

    Just like what one of the reviewers Sara stated that Forensic world is very complicated yet intriguing at the same time I felt the book was good but I found I could only read a chapter or two at a time as I could not engage with it fully I am pleased that Professor Angela Gallop progressed throughout her career showing that it s not easy going out on your own and competing with other companies and as she rightfully said, when working for defence teams, you will always respect your fellow col Just like what one of the reviewers Sara stated that Forensic world is very complicated yet intriguing at the same time I felt the book was good but I found I could only read a chapter or two at a time as I could not engage with it fully I am pleased that Professor Angela Gallop progressed throughout her career showing that it s not easy going out on your own and competing with other companies and as she rightfully said, when working for defence teams, you will always respect your fellow colleagues findings even though there maybe difficult situations that can undermine a case.So a very interesting read but sorry not a 5 star from me but could easily be a 5 star to someone who fully understands the Professors World

    A fascinating and informative insight into the work of Forensic biologists and their colleagues.Some very high profile cases are featured in this book, it is quite harrowing but extremely well written.I ve heard great things about this book from fellow science and criminology students, and it doesn t disappoint A must read if you are interested in Science, forensics, crime, policing techniques, and biographies.

    Whilst this book was mildly interesting, I think it was let down by the self congratulatory ego massaging being paraded throughout I didn t get this book to read how amazing Angela Gallop s business sense is, I got it to read about forensic science, both in a historical and contemporary context I understand that the author entered into a field that was misogynistic and male chauvinist back in the day, and so achieved an incredible thing by rising to the top of her field, but I don t want to re Whilst this book was mildly interesting, I think it was let down by the self congratulatory ego massaging being paraded throughout I didn t get this book to read how amazing Angela Gallop s business sense is, I got it to read about forensic science, both in a historical and contemporary context I understand that the author entered into a field that was misogynistic and male chauvinist back in the day, and so achieved an incredible thing by rising to the top of her field, but I don t want to read about how this company was merged and acquisitions and sleepless nights due to financial backers Blah blah blah I was most surprised by Gallop s willingness to review the evidence in the defense of the Bulger killers suggesting that one of the heinous fuckers was slightly nicer and less involved than the other Just no As a case that was very close to home at the time, I was shocked that anyone would want to provide any sort of defensive evidence for these two evil bastards Rant over The book was alright but I ve read far better on this subject and would not recommend this to anyone wanting to know about true forensic science Forensics What Bugs, Burns, Prints, DNA and More Tell Us About Crime or Death s Acre Inside the Legendary Forensic Lab the Body Farm Where the Dead Do Tell Tales would be better choices
