Historically, the work of forensic scientists has gone largely unrecognized despite its invaluable contributions to the prosecution of countless crimes around the world. Even in works of fiction, the detective has been far more widely represented than his or her counterparts in the lab.

A very, very disturbing book that I am glad I own.

I have never been to an autopsy--though I did view that "alien autopsy" that had the world buzzing several years back. I have never seen a rotting corpse or pulled a body out of a fire. I have no desire to see these things first hand.

As a writer of thrillers, though, I often find myself needing to describe these images and worse, and I want to get them right. Enter Body in Question, a book with pictures, descriptions, and scientific explanations.

WOW! WOW! WOW! Very graphic, mature audiences only! Amazing pictures, stories, details and graphics throughout. Discusses the history of the forensic science and lays out the full scope of the crime scene investigative process: the good, the bad and the ugly. This book is like an encyclopedia, it is replete with information, sure not to disappoint anyone interested in forensics. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. This book is a great tool and a fascinating read.

picked this up at an estate sale for three dollars and so happy I did. I'm trained in death investigation, so most is a review. a very fascinating review. it's not for the squeamish. this is a book I will hang on to and only lend out to certain people (they'll have to leave me their first born). highly recommended if you're interested in this sort of thing.
