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.
this book is disturbing and graphic and everything I like about crime.. ...I'm happy to own this book.. I would never loan it out..
