‘Corrupt Bodies’ by Peter Everett









Corrupt Bodies

When Peter Everett accepted a job as Superintendent of Southwark Mortuary, he soon found he’d taken on a lot more than a run-down building with funding issues and a host of outdated equipment – he’d also lumbered himself with a well-established tradition of corruption and bribery.

With its subtitle, Death and Dirty Dealing in a London Morgue, Peter Everett’s tale of pre-DNA post-mortems is packed with thrilling, gruesome and often very poignant accounts of his work with Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad, as they strive to explain sudden deaths, violent attacks and bloody murders. The author also recounts his fight to end the corruption within the service and his efforts to stay sane in a highly stressful job. A captivating account that will thrill anyone interested in the reality of what happens on the pathologist’s slab.

The audiobook is superbly narrated Mark Elstob, who interprets Everett’s words in a thoughtful and sensitive manner.
