  • St Francis College

By merging true crime with memoir, one of the world's most eminent forensic scientists provides a gripping account of some of the thousands of cases she has helped to solve, including the killings of Stephen Lawrence, Damilola Taylor and the Italian banker Roberto Calvi.

In When the Dogs Don't Bark, Angela describes her involvement in the Yorkshire Ripper investigation, and how she and her colleagues helped to solve some of the UK's most high-profile cases, including the murders of Stephen Lawrence, Damilola Taylor, Rachel Nickell and the Italian banker Roberto Calvi, who was found hanging under Blackfriars Bridge in London in 1982. But as well as helping to bring dangerous criminals to justice, Angela has also been involved in correcting serious miscarriages of justice and exonerating innocent people ? such as the Cardiff Three ? who have been wrongly accused and convicted of crimes they didn't commit.

Angela Gallop started her career in 1974 working for the Home Office Forensic Science Service. Twelve years later, she set up her first company, with the aim of creating some balance in the courtroom by providing defence lawyers with the same access to forensic services that had previously only been available to the prosecution. Now one of the world's most eminent forensic scientists, Angela was awarded a CBE in 2015 for her services to forensic science.
