    What a misleading title this book has been given I was expecting something along the lines of the wonderful Dead Men Do Tell Tales reviewed in Morbid Curiosity 4 in other words, down and dirty details of how corpses helped solve crimes Only after struggling through eight chapters in which corpses never speak and are sometimes not even consulted did I read the credits page There I discovered that the original British title of this book was Forensic Fingerprints Remarkable Real Life Murder Cases Solved by Forensic Detection A title as dull as its contents.Since there s no point of view in this collection of police cases, there s no one to give any impressions of the cops and doctors who step forward to tell their stories, changing narrators each chapter There s no way to judge if these people know what they re talking about.In fact, Miller s introduction claims that some names and places have been changed I guess you re meant to trust Miller didn t create what follows out of whole cloth I did catch one mistake, so I wonder if there may be others In a chapter about a girl strangled in San Francisco, the movie theater she said she was attending has been moved several miles across town, so that it could be in ...

    WARNING The descriptions of many of these crimes are VERY graphic and the crimes themselves are very disturbing.While this is a good idea, the execution leaves much to be desired It is like watching a CSI episode based on a crime that really happened as the names, places and some of the facts are changed to be dramatic.The autho...

    Most of the time I thumb through a book before I read it but this one I think I found a recommendation for on line and just took a chance It wasn t bad, but it was a little bit like reading the CSI TV show then reading about real cases I like the technical aspects of forensic detective work This book read like crime drama still it was interesting and a quick read probably would ve finished it sooner except for how busy and preoccupied I ve been While most of the 16 cases were interesting there was only one about the death of a four year old boy that was really upsetting I wanted to throw up actually when I finished reading it I had to put the book down for a while after that too The death of innocent children really gets to me on that...

    Interesting, but not very sophisticated or technical.

    What the Corpse Revealed is on my true crime shelf only because I see no need to create a special allegedly true crime but so heavily disguised as to be fictional bookshelf.If this was not marketed as a collection of true casefiles, I d have rated it higher The subject matter is very interesting and the cases are all unusual and have very clever endings.And the writing itself is good Not a standout, but good.However, this book flies a false flag The disclaimer says that to protect innocent people from distress or embarrassment, some names and places have been changed.By the looks of it, just about everything was changed I can find nothing online about any of these cases, nor even ones that are similar The unusual names mentioned come up on a Google search only with references to the book itself, and the other names are so common sounding it would be pointless to try and ssearch for them.I am forced to conclude that the cases themselves are fabricated around a kernel or two of truth Which is annoying and disappointing.What makes it even irritating is that most of the cases as presented here are so sensational that if they d actually happened, there absolutely would have been a good deal of media coverage and thus some verifiable materials online For instance, in the last case presented, a nurse sets fire to an exclusive Hollywood nursing home that catered to former silent movie stars, killing several She also had set fir...

    Interesting but slightly misconstruedI found the cases throughout the book very interesting, but I feel as though the book may have been advertised slightly wrong What the Corpse Revealed was advertised as a true crime book, and yet Miller ...

    This was a very good book Lots of bizarre and interesting cases that I enjoyed reading about and I believe many others with find intellectually stimulating as well I would highly recommend this book if you are into crime investigation books and forensics.

    A collection of stories from crimes solved by forensics around the world I had read a couple of them before but most were new Many were chilling but all were educational for a true crime buff.

    What the Corpse Revealed is compiled of 16 unique murder cases that were put to rest due to unimaginable uses of forensic science Each case included the background of all related persons, the details of how a body was discovered and analyzed, a brief description of how forensic science provided certain leads for detectives, and how each individual case was eventually brought to a close The biggest take away for this book was that it established the importance of forensic investigation when relating to crimes I, personally, found it truly remarkable how such little evidence can put knowledgeable and thorough criminals behind bars Knowing that this book was published in 1999, and recognizing that technology never ceases to progress, only attributes to my amazement for the use of biology When searching for a non fiction book that integrated the use of forensic science, I was not impressed when coming across this one What the Corpse Revealed consists mostly of plot and re...

    First, the prospective reader should be warned, although this particular book contains forensic scientific investigations based in the U.S the author is almost decidedly English and his vernacular is very much British influenced, making it at times a bit of a bother Yet, the author manages to take a number of interesting criminal cases from around the world and describe the forensic science which led to the revelation of the criminal behind some of the ghastly acts Despite the title of the book, it is not autopsy heavy, but involves cases that are of a CSI type investigation, many of the stories involved even before the CSI era There are some autopsy findings, etc but the book is much about forensic science of all sorts The author changed some of the names, but the stories are all true, gathered in a journalistic manner and presented as such The author never sensationalizes the crimes, some of them quite ghastly, but always keeps...
