Considered one of the world's leading pathologists, Baden is host of the popular program "Autopsy" on HBO. Along with award-winning writer Roach, Dr. Baden, takes readers on a you-are-there tour of the morgue to demonstrate how the advances in forensic science are helping to solve crimes as never before. For most people, the forensic sciences are something reported on the news when a crime is solved through DNA evidence, or used as a plot twist for television shows. But behind the crime-scene tape and the doors of the morgue is a world never seen by the public. Now famed pathologist and medical examiner Dr. Michael Baden and award-winning writer Marion Roach take readers into the laboratory, above the autopsy table, onto the witness stand and out in the field to show how advances in forensic science can solve crucial questions in a criminal case, often with startling accuracy.
Baden and Roach reveal how a key clue to the killer of Nicole Brown Simpson was lost when her body was moved to the morgue, and why the JonBenet Ramsey case can never be solved. They show how no clue is too small to be analyzed and no case too old to be reopened. Full of behind-the-scenes drama and surprising revelations, Dead Reckoning is a fascinating look at how forensic science is changing the way we convict the guilty and free the innocent.

Awesome book. Really ...

Awesome book. Really goes into great detail about the science in forensic science.

I have been interested in forensic science, particularly forensic pathology, since I was in about 7th grade (early '60s). I am endlessly fascinated with this subject. So I had high hopes for this book. Baden is a nationally known forensic pathologist. But he is far too aware of his own reputation. Rather than informative, I found this to be egotistical.

Good for someone new to the subject of forensic science, but a little too basic for me. Also, some of the writing was a bit self-aggrandizing...~Stephanie
