Viking PublishingExtremely well-written, with great immediacy and courage, Crime Scene is an unforgettable story that examines how we deal with death, from a woman who has led an incredible life.
Dr Selwyn Smith“Esther McKay has written a remarkable book. She describes in riveting detail the work of a police officer in general and a crime scene investigator in particular. Her descriptions are both crushing and heartrending.”

Ted Bassingthwaighte
“Esther Mckay is a real and dramatic case study for police organisations across the country. Crime Scene is arguably the biggest and best brief of evidence that Esther Mckay has ever compiled in her career. The startling reality of this book is that it may be the catharsis resulting in the necessary discharge of pain, anger and frustration embedded in her psyche after fifteen years of long shifts, early morning callouts, gruelling episodes in the witness box and unabated anxiety.”
