The Dead Do Tell Tales...

A pioneer in forensic anthropology, Dr. Bill Bass created the world's first laboratory dedicated to the study of human decomposition. Bill Bass's research at "the Body Farm" has revolutionized forensic science, helping police crack cold cases and pinpoint time since death. In this riveting book, the bone sleuth explores the rise of modern forensic science, using cases from his career to take readers into the real world of "CSI."

Some of Bill Bass's cases rely on the simplest of tools and techniques, while other cases hinge on sophisticated techniques Dr. Bass could not have imagined when he began his career: using computer data and video image processing to help identify murder victims; harnessing scanning electron microscopy to detect trace elements in knife wounds; and extracting DNA from a long-buried corpse, only to find that the female murder victim may have been mistakenly identified a quarter-century before. Witty and engaging, Bass dissects the methods used by homicide investigators every day, leading readers on an extraordinary journey into the high-tech science that it takes to crack a case.

This is a great CD! The narrator is the author, and an expert in the field. He is engaging and easy to follow. He explains the hard medical and scientific concepts or vocabulary, without losing the easy story-telling style. I must caution, this is not for the faint of heart or the queasy. I have a pretty tough stomach, but even I found I could not eat while listening. did not make me ill at all, just didn't want to consider food with those pictures in my mind. Fascinating, detailed, interesting, true crime, who dunnit. If you or someone you know is interested in anthropology, or any of the crime lab clone shows on TV--this is a great CD.

This is an exceptional book-on-discs. The information is interesting, to say the least. If one is a fan of CSI (presuming they are not burned out by not one but two clones), then they will definitely enjoy this book. The authors' explanations are clear and help one to understand much about the human bodies, both those of the living and deceased.

The narrator does an excellent job. His pace is comfortable and his slight twang is charming and complementary to the setting in which this work is done (Knoxville and points south).

I am going to look for other works by these same authors and narrator. They have achieved, in my opinion, the gold standard.
