“Really engrossing and entertaining read. A must for anyone who likes CSI, Patricia Cornwell, Kathy Reichs, Dexter, or any type of mystery having to do with medical examiners or forensics. ”Colette B wrote this review Friday, July 30, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“For a nonfiction book on a presupposedly dry subject, Dissecting Death provides an interesting window into the lives and jobs of Medical Examiners. Dealing with cadavers and homicide victims is not for everyone, but the book is fascinating nonetheless. Written from Zugibe's point of view, it accurately describes how an ME goes about collecting evidence and eventually doing the autopsy to assist detectives and policemen.
For me, I look for books like this one purely because I find the subject fascinating, but there are few books like it that create a work that does not become uninteresting after the first thrity pages. I read it quickly and liked it very much, I recomend it to true crime fans and curious book worms alike. ”
