Morgue: A Life in Death

Morgue: A Life in Death - Ron Franscell, Vincent J.M. DiMaio This book was fascinating.

Hats off to anyone that can do this work and not go crazy. I enjoyed this book immensely. Each chapter is a different case Dr. Vincent Di Maio has worked on or helped out with. Most (if not all) are high profile ones. Trayvon Martin, Lee Harvey Oswald , West Memphis Three, Phil Spector, and even Vincent Van Go. There are a few that involve babies and kids, so be warned if you plan on reading this one.

My only complaint, and it's a small one. I would have liked a bit more details on some of the cases, and of some of the more mundane things that a job like this entails. I also would have liked to hear some of the more "weird or odd" things that he has run across over the years as a forensic pathologist. You KNOW there has to be at least a few of those!

Overall though, a very enjoyable read.
