Every Contact Leaves a Trace by Jo Ward

Jo Ward
129 x 198mm

Every Contact Leaves a Trace is a gripping look at crime scenes - dead bodies, blood spatter, murder weapons - and how a forensics specialist keeps it together as she does her job.

Enter the fascinating world of crime scene investigation with this chilling memoir from Jo Ward of BBC's Forensics - the Real CSI. For most people, dead bodies are horrifying. They are the physical representation of everything we're afraid of - our own mortality, the unknown, the inevitability and lack of dignity of the end. But for Jo Ward, a dead body is absolutely fascinating... For Jo, a normal day's work involves getting up-close and personal with the dead - generally the murdered dead - exploring every inch of their battered and bloody bodies and finding the clues that will lead the police to their killers. Every scene teaches her something new. Every murder is a chance to obtain justice for the dead. Because every contact leaves a trace... Jo Ward is part of a generation of pioneering women who lead forensic investigation in the UK. Her investigations into high-profile crimes- murder, domestic killings, infanticide, and rape - have been the subject of a BBC Two television documentary, Forensics - the Real CSI. If you're a fan of Sue Black and Patricia Wiltshire, Every Contact Leaves a Trace is for you. It's a rare glimpse into a formidable woman and the world of forensics, chronicling some of Jo's toughest and most groundbreaking cases and offering insight into how she copes despite seeing the most shocking excesses of humanity.
