This book finally told me how Robert Kennedy and John Belushi died. It explains the matter of celebrity (and other) deaths but not who killed the ones that were homicides. It explains the details of the Tate-LaBianca killings. Very detailed forensic book.
Los Angeles County Medical Examiner and Coroner, Thomas T. Noguchi, MD tells the secrets of all those high-profile deaths: Marilyn Monroe; Robert F. Kennedy; Sharon Tate; Janis Jopli; William Holden; Natalie Wood; John Belushi; Patty Hearst's kidnappers...
Very interesting. This Coroner 'to the stars' reveals inside information behind the deaths of such stars as; Robert Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, and William Holden. He also wrote of several mass disasters such as airplane collisions. I would luv to read another book of Noguchi's on the more recent deaths of famous people. He writes of the uncensored secrets that he was not able to reveal in earlier years.
In Thomas T. Noguchi's memoir, Coroner, the former Chief Medical Examiner of Los Angeles County and the "coroner to the stars", reveals the full evidence behind the headline-making deaths of Robert F. Kennedy, Janis Joplin, Sharon Tate, Marilyn Monroe and others - the shocking and surprising facts can now be released in this stunning memoir.
I had wanted to read this book ever since reading the sequel back in September and was excited when I received this book in the mail last week. It was very interesting reading certainly, but I'm glad to have finished it when I did - I think that it was just a tad too long for me. Definitely not boring at all, just longer and a little more involved than I had expected the book would be when I first started it. I would certainly recommend Coroner to anyone who likes to read about true crime and give this book an A!
I really enjoyed this book....so much that I am keeping it. Cannot wait until I get the second installment. I like the way this guy explains things in language I can understand.
This one is titled Coroner. In top right hand corner of the cover is a cut place of the corner.
