"Dame Sue Black is an internationally renowned forensic anthropologist and human anatomist... Cutting through hype, romanticism, and cliché, she recounts her first dissection; her own first acquaintance with a loved one's death; the mortal remains in her lab and at burial sites as well as scenes of violence, murder, and criminal dismemberment; and about investigating mass fatalities due to war, accident, or natural disaster, such as the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. She uses key cases to reveal how forensic science has developed and what her work has taught her about human nature."--Dust jacket flap.

It's a very interesting memoir about working with death. I don't know if I agreed with some of her conclusions, but I liked her perspective on life, crimes, and death. It takes a certain person to be able to deal with war crimes. It's very well written and offers a different perspective from those who work in mortuaries.
