Praise

"When he’s not shattering myths about maggots, Dr. Maples is delightfully unraveling true murder mysteries, ancient and modern.  He’s not just another clever forensic detective — he’s a poet, a philosopher, and a sly commentator on the fractured human condition, pre-and post-mortem."
— Carl Hiaasen, author of Strip Tease and Native Tongue

"Whether Maples’ subjects are famous or anonymous, it is how he tells their stories that makes this book so fascinating and — in its fashion — delightful."
–Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World

"William R. Maples and Michael Browning could’ve written a dry clinical analysis of forensic anthropology; instead they tell tales better than the dead could for themselves."
New York Times Book Review
