    An easy book to put down

    My uncle gave me this book because I have been to numerous autopsies and have had internships with various county forensics crews in SW Michigan. I was excited to read the book at first, but quickly became frustrated with the author's writing style. Each case appeared to be written as a stand alone section with only a little thought given to the fact that it would be part of a book. A lot of the terminology was repetitive; if he explained it once, he explained it three times. I think the thing that was most annoying was his repetition of the buzz words "macabre" and "red herring." A little variety would have been nice. I also felt related cases were stuck in just because he could or to show that "hey, I did research-here it is!" It broke up the flow of the reading and at times became confusing switching between the real case and the "bonus" cases. <BR/><BR/>The cases themselves were interesting. Especially for anyone that is familiar with Michigan. One incident actually took place less than a mile from my mom's house. The chapter entitled "Things ain't always what they seem" was great. It was quick, to the point and didn't stray from the case at hand. The addition of the color photo section in the middle was also a nice touch. <BR/><BR/>There are many good qualities about the book, but the writing style and use of the buzz words is the reason I'm only giving it 3 stars. If the flow had been better with less reptition, I would have scored it higher.
