In this clear-eyed, gritty, and enthralling narrative, Dr. Vincent DiMaio and veteran crime writer Ron Franscell guide us behind the morgue doors to tell a fascinating life story through the cases that have made DiMaio famous-from the exhumation of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald to the complex issues in the shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. Beginning with his street-smart Italian origins in Brooklyn, the book spans 40 years of work and more than 9,000 autopsies, and DiMaio's eventual rise into the pantheon of forensic scientists. One of the country's most methodical and intuitive criminal pathologists will dissect himself, maintaining a nearly continuous flow of suspenseful stories, revealing anecdotes, and enough macabre insider details to rivet the most fervent crime fans.

SALTIRE BOOK OF THE YEAR 2018 THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER! Featured on BBC RADIO 4's Start the Week 'Sue Black has been intimately involved with the aftermath of death for her whole professional career and in her book she weaves in details of her amazing and active life with her analysis of death in a narrative that is personal, touching, occasionally tragic but also instilled with her wonderful sense of humour.' Dr Richard Shepherd, Forensic Pathologist 'A beautifully written memoir' Sunday Times. 'All That Remains provides a fascinating look at death - its causes, our attitudes toward it, the forensic scientist's way of analyzing it. A unique and thoroughly engaging book' Kathy Reichs Sue Black confronts death every day. As Professor of Anatomy and Forensic Anthropology, she focuses on mortal remains in her lab, at burial sites, at scenes of violence, murder and criminal dismemberment, and when investigating mass fatalities due to war, accident or natural disaster. In All That Remains she reveals the many faces of death she has come to know, using key cases to explore how forensic science has developed, and what her work has taught her. Do we expect a book about death to be sad? Macabre? Sue's book is neither. There is tragedy, but there is also humour in stories as gripping as the best crime novel. Our own death will remain a great unknown. But as an expert witness from the final frontier, Sue Black is the wisest, most reassuring, most compelling of guides.

A Life In Death - Memoirs Of A Cotswold Funeral Director takes the reader into the largely hidden world of death and funerals, as set against the picturesque back-drop of the Gloucestershire countryside. After spending twenty five years in the funeral profession so far, there is much that James Baker can share with readers about his professional journey and his experiences. This book was written not just to entertain, but also to enlighten and hopefully, to reassure. Above all, it opens up a whole new view into the practical reality of death and bereavement in contemporary Britain. 'A Life In Death' was written with a wide cross-section of readers in mind, based on the profiles of people who regularly ask the author about what his work involves. If you identify yourself with any of the following statements, then this book will be of great interest to you: People of all ages who are fascinated with the work of a funeral director, or readers simply looking for an entertaining and very human account of a unique working life; Palliative care and/or nursing professionals who want to understand more about the various procedures following a death and the choices open to the bereaved; Would-be entrants into the funeral profession; Those who are preparing for an imminent bereavement, or those already bereaved, who are looking for a sensitively written, but honest and truthful insight into the practical realities of death and funerals. 'A Life In Death' fills what is still a huge and lingering gap in the market for an intelligent, comprehensive, but highly readable account of life within the funeral profession. The author deliberately avoids the use of hackneyed, predictably humorous anecdotes and overly-sentimental, or lurid, accounts of tragic episodes. Instead, writing as a West Country funeral director, James Baker offers a sensitive, insightful and nuanced account of what his working life is really like.

Every since the terrorist attack of September 11th, the words "war on terror" have become firmly embedded in the global consciousness. Do we fall victim to bitterness and fear; or do we respond the way Jesus would respond in sacrificial love? These are the questions everyone must answer. As we look at news reports, terrorist attacks are only getting worse. This book gives the heart wrenching story of Lisa Gibson's loss of her brother in the 1988 terrorist bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland and how her faith has allowed her to overcome that act of evil for good by serving in the country responsible. This book offers hope and encouragement for those struggling with fear and inspires faith to propel everyone to engage in this strategic battle. "This is a remarkable story of one woman's struggle with tragedy and her care for those who many would say are her enemies." Congressman Joseph R. Pitts "To reflectively read this book is to go farther in coming to terms with what God truly wants to see in Christians loving their enemies. Gibson takes it from religious poetry to teeth gritting reality. How I yearn that every Western Christian who is repulsed by Muslim terrorism would follow in her steps." Dr. Greg Livingstone Founder of Frontiers Lisa Gibson is the Founder and Executive Director of the Peace and Prosperity Alliance. She is an attorney and has served in senior leadership positions with advocacy and global missions organizations. Lisa has a unique voice on global terrorism having lost her brother on the 1988 terrorist bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. She has seen the power and restoration that comes from seeing true justice, forgiveness and reconciliation in cases such as these.
