From a young woman's murder in Virginia, solved a decade later by exhuming a skeletal hand, to the brutal death of a Paleolithic trader, the world famous forensic sleuth Dr. Douglas Ubelaker invites us to join him in a thrilling adventure. Taking us into the Smithsonian's collections, he explains the state of the art techniques that enable skilled practitioners to read the details of a life from a single thigh bone.

A tantalizing collection of cases carries us from courtrooms, where a forensic expert's testimony can mean the difference between a conviction and an acquittal, to the most fascinating archeological digs in the world. We see firsthand how ancient discoveries continue to help solve twentieth century crimes and how forensic science has made the bones of the dead speak.
