Detective Inspector Richard Venables QPM (Rtd.) has helped identify thousands of bodies all over the world, piecing together fragments from tsunamis, transport and other disasters to return the victims to their loved ones. A world-renowned expert in Disaster Victim Identification who was a member of the UK Police's Major Disaster Advisory Team, Richard's destiny was shaped in part by his presence as a uniformed sergeant at the 1989 Hillsborough Disaster. In A Life in Death, Richard tells the extraordinary story of how death came to be a key feature of his personal as well as professional life, and how he coped with the biggest challenge of all: the 2004 Asian Tsunami, the deadliest event of its kind ever experienced by human civilization, claiming 230,000 lives.
