As an experienced forensic pathologist, Malcolm Dodd thought he had seen everything. But when he arrived in East Timor they told him he would have to "harden up", They were right. Justice for the Dead looks at what goes on behind the scenes of some of the most brutal mass murders of modern history. It's a compelling personal account that takes the reader from East Timor to mass graves in Kosovo and the jungles of the Solomon islands.
