Thank you, booklady 331, for this generous RABCK! I've already begun reading it (although I am in the middle of several books already) and it is fascinating.

Very clear and engaging explanation of the job of a medical examiner. This book reinforced my faith in some of the crime fiction authors I have read (e.g., Patricia Cornwell and Jeffrey Deaver), because many of the things Dr. Zugibe explained were things I had already read about in the Kay Scarpetta or Lincoln Rhyme novels. Seems like the authors are doing a good job with their homework.

And it seems to be that truth is at least as strange as fiction, if not stranger. There were some fascinating stories in this collection. In general, the perpetrators didn't seem to be quite as hard to pin down in the real-life tales as they sometimes are in fiction.

I also enjoyed the last chapter, although it was a bit of a jolting change of pace. In this section, the Dr. Zugibe gives his strong opinions regarding the bumbling of the investigators and prosecutors in the JonBenet Ramsey and O.J. Simpson cases, and gives a brief, rather random disparagement of the use of psychics in criminal investigation.

Overall, this was a very good read. Thank you again, booklady331, for sharing it with me.

I have passed it along to a coworker and told him to pass it along, in turn, when he has read it, so I am marking it as traveling, though it's not really a wild release...

ETA 8-22-12: This book has made its way back to me. I've tagged hostile17 with it in the Wish List Tag game - will send this week.
