    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 chapter...

    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 more like reading the CSI TV show then reading about real cases. I like the more technical aspects of forens...

    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...

    Interesting, but not very sophisticated or technical. ...

    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 scienc...

    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 auth...

    An excllent casebook of strange investigations. What I really liked about the book is that there wasn't much commentary from the author. Each case was presented in a matter of fact way and the color was supplied by the actual detectives and medical examiners, and in some cases witnesse...

    I know I say I'm not a fan of the short story but these 16 different tales of how forensic detection solved the crimes were very good and interesting. They gave just enough detail of the crime to pull you in and enough of the science for you to understand how the crimes were solved wit...

    Interesting but I felt it odd that so many of the cases seemed to deal with a sort of "just" murder, rapist or murdered being taken out by one of the people who was directly effected by their crimes. I know some details and most names were changed, but I found that I could not find mos...

    A compendium of many different crime cases and how forensics solved them. Very interesting read. Spans many different years and types of crimes, as well as many different forensics techniques. Most cases are very interesting. ...

    Interesting read... I always wondered if there were actually crimes as horrible as some described in novels and now I have an answer, however, I DO NOT recommend this book to any of my friends, because after reading this, I feel messed up in the head... ...

    Very interesting reading about the real deal after digesting so much fiction! It is horrifing to read about some of these crimes, but satisfying to see how they all got their "rewards" in the end. ...

    This book was not the most thrilling read, but it had its moments. I am glad I finished it. ...

    Sixteen different stories, presented in a Sherlock Holmes format. It had potential, nice title, but I found it boring: insufficient forensics. ...

    I strongly suspect this book is on the shelf of the writers at CSI - many of the cases profiled here have since been fictionalized on the show. ...

    Very interesting and strange cases and some rather graphic photos for those of us who are more morbid than the average person! ...

    Good collection of forensic-detection cases. All kinds of interesting oddities in here. ...

    Fun book. Easy short "pick up - put down" chapters for quick reads. ...

    Very interesting reading about the real deal after digesting so much fiction! It is horrifing to read about some of these crimes, but satisfying to see how they all got their "rewards" in the end. ...

    This book was not the most thrilling read, but it had its moments. I am glad I finished it. ...

    Sixteen different stories, presented in a Sherlock Holmes format. It had potential, nice title, but I found it boring: insufficient forensics. ...

    I strongly suspect this book is on the shelf of the writers at CSI - many of the cases profiled here have since been fictionalized on the show. ...

    Very interesting and strange cases and some rather graphic photos for those of us who are more morbid than the average person! ...

    Good collection of forensic-detection cases. All kinds of interesting oddities in here. ...

    Fun book. Easy short "pick up - put down" chapters for quick reads. ...
