Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

For those who find death and its inevitable aftereffects on the body fascinating, this is a fascinating audiobook. Forensic medicine and courtroom drama fans will thrill to the gory details of decay abundant in this straight-ahead treatise on the postmortem. Dr. Bill Bass, founder of the infamous "Body Farm," an acre in Virginia dedicated to the study of corpses and their quiet but colorful "lives," pioneered the valuable and macabre science of forensics, invaluable to law enforcement, insurance company lawsuits, and any TV show beginning with the letters CSI. Reader George Grizzard brings appropriate gravitas to the sprightly text; his voice is surprisingly warm and fuzzy. D.J.B.
