This book was what triggered the TV series and jump-started the forensic anthropology field. Very fascinating.

This book reminded me of The Cases That Haunt Us by Douglas and Olshaker; in this book, Maples applies his science, forensic anthropology, to historically significant cases such as the deaths of Tsar Nicholas II and his family and of Zachary Taylor, once President of the United States. In The Cases That Haunt Us, Douglas applied his science, criminal profiling, to historically significant cases such as Jack the Ripper and Lizzie Borden. In both books, the stories told were fascinating.

Excellent collection of case files from a well-known forensic anthropologist. Great read if you are a fan of CSI, Patricia Cornwell, adn all things forensic!

A great book told from the point of view of a leading anthropologist! He doesn't leave out any of the "dirty" details. If you're at all interested in forensics, I recommend reading this book.
