I searched GoodReads for a forensics book with good ratings and reviews and was happy when I found this. However, I am really disappointed by the book.
It is written as a narrative and I don't think this really lends itself to this type of book. It doesn't read well.
The book is, essentially, a personal history of people who make up a unit that came together to find ways of discovering bodies 20-odd years ago. Personally, I don't really care about 10 people's education, their childhood etc. I am interested in the cases from start to finish. I'm 25% of the way through this book and the only cases mentioned have been minimal descriptions of them with no real in-depth analysis or story.
The chapters in this book are ridiculously long also. I'm 1/4 of the way through and there have only been 2 chapters.
I don't think I will be continuing with this book. If you like to know the personal history of every single person that is going to be mentioned in this book and like reading about someone going off on a tangent every few pages; then this is for you! Avoid if you actually want to read about cases.

A great read2014年9月13日に英国でレビュー済み
If you have an interest in crime, forensic science or specialist dogs it's a must read. The history of Necrosearch was told sympathetically and showed the difficulties in establishing a new science very clearly. The case studies were interesting too. Highly recommended.
Very insightful :)2015年11月3日に英国でレビュー済み
I've always been interested in the history behind pathology but have always out of getting a book about it purely because i thought I wouldn't understand any of it!! This book is brilliant , so informative and easy to read !
