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
