Blood Has A Voice - Stories From The Autopsy Table (Paperback)


Foreword by topselling author, Gerard Labuschagne.

A criminal's fate is often sealed by what is found on the autopsy table and Dr Hestelle van Staden has been crucial in the conviction of numerous criminals. As one of South Africa’s leading forensic pathologists, she has conducted over 7 000 autopsies. She has seen the worst South Africa has to offer and has been a voice to numerous murder victims.
