it was amazing
bookshelves: mystery, non-fiction, religion, science, memoir

Death's Acre is primarily a series of interesting stories about solving crimes through forensic science. Jon Jefferson has assisted Dr. Bass in writing a really engaging memoir. This book could have been just a series a CSI type stories, but it is more than that. I found Dr. Bass's discussion of his loss of religious faith particularly interesting. He practiced a conventional Christian faith for over 60 years. His direct experience with horrific murders did not shake it, but the cancer deaths of two women he loved did. It would have been easy to leave this out of the book, but including it gives us insight into the life of a real man who is more than a successful teacher, researcher and mystery solver.
