Overview

A look into the disturbing but fascinating new field of bio-recovery, as a critically acclaimed crime writer rolls up his sleeves and delves into the world of Aftermath, Inc.



The best way to understand the world of Aftermath, Inc. is to imagine life before it. Grief-stricken families of suicide or homicide victims were left to cope on their own. Sometimes police would leave a can of ground coffee behind to soak up the mess. Sometimes local church groups offered to help with the horrific chaos of the scene.



Into this void stepped Tim Reifsteck and Chris Wilson, who filled a desperate need by founding their bio-remediation company. Gil Reavill traces their history, introducing us to their clients and employees, and the cops, coroners, and detectives they encounter in their work. Their stories are stranger than fiction, and utterly human and compelling.

    Interesting Story About Crime Scene Clean-Ups, A Part Of Crime No One Thinks About.

    I found this book very interesting. It does contain some gory stories but that goes hand-in-hand with crime scene clean-up. The chapters discuss many different crime scenes and causes of death from the author's point of view as he visits each scene while temporarily working with the Crime Scene Clean-Up Company. There is one photo at the start of each chapter, and the photos are grainy because the paper is of the soft, cheaper kind. I would have liked to see a photo plate section. There are no photos of the scenes themselves, or the bodies. The photos are, for example, of an SUV for the chapter where the company had to go to Wisconsin to do a crime clean-up and they had just bought the new Mercedes SUV to use, and of a fly for the chapter on human stain etc. I don't want to see lots of gore, but the photos were disappointing and in some cases, not relevant (i.e. the SUV photo). The book itself however is very interesting and is written such that you want to keep reading and not put it down. The book rounds out the reviews of certain crime scenes by giving background and back stories about the crime and the deceased, such as the story about an old man who wore a Father Time outfit. This tends to humanize the victims and made the stories interesting, they are not stories merely of gore. The book reveals things that one doesn't think about regarding the aftermath of violent death.
