Becky checked out a book called Dead Reckoning: the new science of catching killers, by Michael Baden, M.D. and Marion Roach. She seemed pretty engrossed when reading it. I picked it up the other day to skim over the contents and could not put it down.
It is a fascinating collection of anecdotes illustrating what is forensic pathology and why it is important. If you're a fan of crime lab dramas, you'll love the book. This guy is the real thing. He's worked on JFK, Martin Luther King Jr., O.J., the Romanov's and a whole host of other high profile cases in addition to "normal" cases. The book is extremely well written. Smart, accessible, straight forward.
I really enjoyed it.
