Founded in 1991, NecroSearch may be the most powerful crime-busting team ever put together. For this is a brain trust of the nation's top scientists, specialists, and behavioralists who use the latest technology and the most advanced techniques to help solve "unsolvable" crimes: no matter how long ago the murder took place, no matter how decayed the corpse, no matter how cleverly the killer has hidden his victim's body.
New York Times bestselling author Steve Jackson chronicles how NecroSearch came into being, how it developed, and why it is now being called into murder cases all across America and in a half dozen foreign countries. He introduces us to the biologists, chemists, meteorologists, botanists, geophysicists, anthropologists, forensic scientists, and other crime specialists who have come together under the NecroSearch banner to find bodies, retrieve and study evidence, and tie murderers to their crimes.
We meet NecroSearch's founders, who used swine carcasses -- hidden and buried in circumstances typical for many murder victims -- to demonstrate the effects of decay, earning them the nickname "The Pig People." And we journey step-by-step through NecroSearch's cases, as amazed detectives watch these modern-day Sherlock Holmeses find bodies and evidence that no one thought could ever be retrieved -- sometimes tracing the location of a corpse through one microscopic clue. We also see how the work and testimony of the NecroSearch men and women leads to courtroom convictions, as defiant killers are suddenly confronted with the indisputable evidence of their heinous crimes.
For the first time ever, here is a book that takes us on a fascinating, often shocking journey into a realm of crime investigation few people know about. As the author weaves together the true-life mysteries of NecroSearch's cases, he shows why this unique organization is destined to play a key role in some of the most notorious, as-yet-unsolved murders of our time.
