How to Solve a Crime: The A-Z of Forensic Science – HLF22 image

Professor Angela Gallop is one of the world’s most eminent forensic scientists. A specialist in cold-case investigations, she has led forensic teams to find vital evidence in many of the UK’s most challenging cases, including the deaths of Stephen Lawrence, Damilola Taylor, Rachel Nickell, Roberto Calvi and many others.
In How to Solve a Crime, Professor Gallop takes readers behind the police tape and into the heart of the crime scene. From being bemused by mediums to helping identify the man who stabbed George Harrison, the crimes in this book offer a real insight into the mind of a forensic scientist.
With unparalleled access and insight, gained over 45 years in the field, she explains what forensic scientists look for in a crime scene and how crimes are really solved.
Professor Angela Gallop began her career in forensic science in 1974, as a senior biologist in the Home Office Forensic Science Service. In 1986, she set up Forensic Access to ensure that defence lawyers had access to the same skills and expertise as the prosecution. In 1997 she co-founded Forensic Alliance, the first alternative source of comprehensive forensic services for police and other investigators. In 2015, Professor Gallop was awarded a CBE for her services to forensic science. Her first book, When the Dogs Don’t Bark: A Forensic Scientist’s Search for the Truth, was published in 2019.
