Catch Your Eye



"Imagine for a moment, that you are walking in a winter wood. The ground is soft beneath your feet; something catches your eye—something untoward, something not quite natural, in a depression just off the beaten track. Perhaps you are here walking your dog (this is the way so many stories start). Perhaps the dog hurtles off into the undergrowth and whines. As you fight through the brambles to reach it, you have a moment of foreboding—and, looking down, you realize why . . . for there in front of you where the dog has frantically scraped the soil, the lifeless hand of a body is exposed, its pallor stark against the black humus." Read more here from the author Patricia Wiltshire about her work as a forensic ecologist.
