Another one of those books I've been reading in the background for a while. True Crime.
From the Blurb:
When Esther Mckay, an idealistic young constable with the NSW Police, entered the tough, male-dominated world of forensic investigation, she was determined to hold her own. She soon found herself at deeply confronting crime scenes, often working alone and without supervision. Her cases ranged from a beautiful young girl macheted to death by her jealous boyfriend to the electrocution of a small child; from the Newcastle earthquake victims to the suicide whose body had liquefied in his car.
