    One thought on “What the Corpse Revealed: Murder and the Science of Forensic Detection”

    1. What a misleading title this book has been given I was expecting something along the lines of the wonderful Dead Men Do Tell Tales reviewed in Morbid Curiosity 4 in other words, down and dirty details of how corpses helped solve crimes Only after struggling through eight chapters in which corpses never speak and are sometimes not even consulted did I read the credits page There I discovered that the original British title of this book was Forensic Fingerprints Remarkable Real Life Murder Cases S [...]

    2. Most of the time I thumb through a book before I read it but this one I think I found a recommendation for on line and just took a chance It wasn t bad, but it was a little bit like reading the CSI TV show then reading about real cases I like the technical aspects of forensic detective work This book read like crime drama still it was interesting and a quick read probably would ve finished it sooner except for how busy and preoccupied I ve been While most of the 16 cases were interesting ther [...]

    3. WARNING The descriptions of many of these crimes are VERY graphic and the crimes themselves are very disturbing.While this is a good idea, the execution leaves much to be desired It is like watching a CSI episode based on a crime that really happened as the names, places and some of the facts are changed to be dramatic.The author of the book is British and he states in the beginning that he changed the names, places, dates, crimes, pretty much everything in the book, including the quotes from t [...]

    4. This was a very good book Lots of bizarre and interesting cases that I enjoyed reading about and I believe many others with find intellectually stimulating as well I would highly recommend this book if you are into crime investigation books and forensics.

    5. A collection of stories from crimes solved by forensics around the world I had read a couple of them before but most were new Many were chilling but all were educational for a true crime buff.

    6. What the Corpse Revealed is compiled of 16 unique murder cases that were put to rest due to unimaginable uses of forensic science Each case included the background of all related persons, the details of how a body was discovered and analyzed, a brief description of how forensic science provided certain leads for detectives, and how each individual case was eventually brought to a close The biggest take away for this book was that it established the importance of forensic investigation when relat [...]

    7. First, the prospective reader should be warned, although this particular book contains forensic scientific investigations based in the U.S the author is almost decidedly English and his vernacular is very much British influenced, making it at times a bit of a bother Yet, the author manages to take a number of interesting criminal cases from around the world and describe the forensic science which led to the revelation of the criminal behind some of the ghastly acts Despite the title of the book, [...]

    8. An excllent casebook of strange investigations What I really liked about the book is that there wasn t much commentary from the author Each case was presented in a matter of fact way and the color was supplied by the actual detectives and medical examiners, and in some cases witnesses The interviews with the people who were there allowed the story of the investigations to unfold.If you re interested in just how good these forensic detecives are, and the horros they can sometimes be confronted wi [...]

    9. I know I say I m not a fan of the short story but these 16 different tales of how forensic detection solved the crimes were very good and interesting They gave just enough detail of the crime to pull you in and enough of the science for you to understand how the crimes were solved without bogging you down in technical details The title is a bit misleading though as it often wasn t the corpse that revealed interesting details but rather the other evidence found.

    10. Interesting but I felt it odd that so many of the cases seemed to deal with a sort of just murder, rapist or murdered being taken out by one of the people who was directly effected by their crimes I know some details and most names were changed, but I found that I could not find most of the cases anywhere on the internet either.

    11. A compendium of many different crime cases and how forensics solved them.Very interesting read Spans many different years and types of crimes, as well as many different forensics techniques Most cases are very interesting.

    12. Interesting read I always wondered if there were actually crimes as horrible as some described in novels and now I have an answer, however, I DO NOT recommend this book to any of my friends, because after reading this, I feel messed up in the head

    13. Very interesting reading about the real deal after digesting so much fiction It is horrifing to read about some of these crimes, but satisfying to see how they all got their rewards in the end.

    14. Sixteen different stories, presented in a Sherlock Holmes format It had potential, nice title, but I found it boring insufficient forensics.

    15. I strongly suspect this book is on the shelf of the writers at CSI many of the cases profiled here have since been fictionalized on the show.

    16. Very interesting and strange cases and some rather graphic photos for those of us who are morbid than the average person
