Reflecting Professor Byard’s lifelong interest, the section on SIDS and associated conditions is excellent, providing a detailed overview of the syndrome and the conduct of investigations into such deaths. Similarly, there are well-structured chapters on non-natural deaths, written together with Dr Cohle. The rapidly evolving field of inflicted fatal childhood injury is reviewed in detail, and provides a balanced view on the pathophysiology of conditions such as the shaken infant syndrome and retinal haemorrhage.
