A fascinating insight into the daily work of a State Coroner, who conducted the post mortems for Michael Hutchence, French photographer Roni Levi, who was shot dead by police, and many of the victims of the Thredbo disaster.

When the telephone rings in the middle of the night, it is usually bad news. When the telephone rings in the middle of the night and you are the State Coroner, it is invariably someone else's bad news.

Derrick Hand was the NSW State Coroner for 20 years. This book takes you with him behind the scenes of his investigations and shows how he pieced together the puzzles thrown up by some of the most notorious deaths in Australia.
