A Forensic Scientist’s Search for the Truth
As one of the world’s most eminent forensic scientists, Professor Angela Gallop has helped solve many high-profile cases such as the killings of Stephen Lawrence, Damilola Taylor and Rachel Nickell. Never before has criminal justice rested so heavily on scientific evidence and, from her first crime scene in a case involving the Yorkshire Ripper, to her latest investigations, Professor Gallop has seen tremendous change. Far more fascinating than any fiction, her cases and how she reached her conclusions, make for riveting reading in her memoir, When the Dogs Don’t Bark.
Angela Gallop, during her 40 year career, has specialised in cold-case investigations, and has led forensic teams to find vital evidence in many of the UK's most challenging cases. She is professor of Forensic Science at Strathclyde University and was awarded a CBE in 2015 for her services to forensic science.
