The Coroner offers a fascinating insight into the daily work of Derrick Hand, who investigated the death of Michael Hutchence, led the inquiry into the Thredbo disaster, sent the killers of Anita Cobby to trial and presided over the court hearings in the wake of the police shooting of French photographer Roni Levi at Bondi. Derrick Hand was a NSW State Coroner for many years. In The Coroner we travel with him behind the scenes of his investigations and discover how he pieces together the puzzles thrown up by suspicious deaths and helps to bring some of Australia's most notorious murderers to justice. This remarkable narrative reveals a principled, compassionate man, who is often under immense pressure to perform, both in the courtroom and at the scene of violent death. With fascinating insights into forensic science and the workings of the court and criminal justice system, The Coroner's story of an ordinary man in an extraordinary job will hold your attention to the very last sentence.
