The murder of Sarah Payne, Adam the Thames Torso, the London bombings, the Night Stalker and the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko... The solving of all these cases can be linked to one man: Ray Fysh, a Charlton Athletic fan from Woolwich, a natural raconteur and also one of the finest forensic detectives the country has ever seen.

Ray began work for the Met Police in the 1970s when forensic investigation was seen as little more than a geeky side show, only in existence to confirm or eliminate evidence. But by the mid 90s Ray and his team had made huge progress in their field, contributing to the UK becoming a world-leading innovator in forensic techniques, with Ray himself being named as Special Adviser to the Forensic Science Service. As the SA, Ray worked alongside Senior Investigating Officers from day one of a case, directing his team to identify forensic opportunities and harvest case-cracking clues.

As Ray looks back over his career at the cases he worked on, the reader is given unparalleled insight into the highs and lows of an astonishing career, the historic classist snobbery of the Met and the stunning realities of crime and forensics

Ray Fysh joined the Metropolitan Police forensic science laboratory in 1971 and soon became a key member of the team. When the Metropolitan Police Forensic Science Laboratory merged with the Forensic Science Service in 1996, Ray was established in the newly formed role as a Special Advisor for Major Crime and soon became indispensable to the police forces he served. The phrase 'Ray, just get me some DNA' soon became the well-worn request from leading Senior Investigating Officers, and he did not let them down.
