Can the medical examiner really glean all the information from a dead body thats portrayed on forensic television shows? In this book, Dr. Cumberland gives the reader a look into the life of a real working medical examiner and the types of death cases that routinely come through his morgue. The author uses actual cases from the hundreds of autopsies he has performed in Mobile, AL, and Pensacola, FL, to explain basic principles and procedures used in death investigation in a way that is both entertaining and educational. Cumberlands gift for storytelling and his ability to explain complex issues in everyday language make this book not only readable but enjoyable for both teenagers and adults.
