I have a somewhat special relationship with this book as I know the author and I worked for Dr. Doug Owsley, the physical anthropologist who opened Kennicott's coffin to study his remains. So naturally, I was eager to read more about the Kennicott case, which happened long before I worked at the Smithsonian.

I found Sandra's writing extremely accessible and I enjoyed the organization of the book: chapters about the modern investigation are interspersed between chapters about Kennicott's travels.
