I enjoy reading non-fiction books,especially indepth,forensic research where foul play may be suspected. My general backround as an LPN,having accrued experiences for more than 25 years, encompassing careplan writing,involving goals preset for all patients,whereby thorough research was instituted relating to all changes in health status,(from improvement in ADL'S performance to cognitive degeneration),were to be prepared for patient conferences, routinely by the DON,administrative department heads and patient's family members,several times per month.I found this book enormously impressive and extremely insightful,such an empathetic understanding and,"difficult to put down". Emily Craig brings such fascinating facts to life that I almost felt as if I were standing beside her,participating with the investigations. This book was trully a worthwhile purchase,indeed.

Enticing from the beginning! As Dr Craig allows us to travel and experience behind the scenes of a real forensic anthropologist. I truely appreciate the book allowing us, the public to actually partake in real life forensics. Providing us with an understanding of the dispair and determination in identifying endless numbers of victims. Numerous lives destroyed by horrendous crimes. This book is highly recommended as excellent reading into real lives of experts behind the scenes. (Not the television version)! It provides us with an indepth understanding of what is involved in the daily task of forensic anthropologists. In addition, to some of the (living) victims in search for answers!

Emily's 'tour of duty' in the forensic world have indeed been amazingly described in 'Teasing Secrets from the Dead'... It will be a fascinating and informative read for both the professional and the layman alike...brought to you by one of the BEST in the field. Emily brings the mysterious forensic world to the human level for all to understand and admire. Amazingly detailed descriptions...as seen through the caring eyes of a lady with a passion for the cause. -Todd Matthews Media Director for DoeNetwork & OutpostForHope

This book is the most exhilarating and addicting book I have ever read. When I picked it up yesterday and began reading I could not lay it down until I finished later in the afternoon. The details are so descriptive it was as if I were just another associate along with Dr. Craig while she performed her job. This book will definitely inspire many people looking for a career in anthropology or forensics. It has truly been written with victims in mind. Many people will never have the opportunity to experience traumatic incidents first hand. Nor will we even have an inclination about what goes on behind the scene other than what has been published by news. (Which can never give the story in a real perspective)? Nonetheless, Emily has diligently and cautiously brought us along beside her in some of her famous cases. I am sure I will read this book more than once and highly recommend this book to victims, inspiring anthropologies, law enforcement, and forensic personnel. I must warn you first. Once she reels you in you¿ll be hooked.

The stories in this book could be interesting, but the writing, which comes across like a high-schooler's college application or something from a vanity publication, gets in the way. More fundamentally,it is distasteful to hear the author squeal with delight at being part of the "prosecution's strategy". This "scientist" is supposed to be a keeper of forensic evidence. Shouldn't a scientist be able to keep her biases in check? Having read this book, I have lost my respect for forensic "science".

When I first came across this book online, the name of the author sounded vaguely familiar. Then I realized that Emily Craig was mentioned in another book written by Dr. Bill Bass, none other than her forensics teacher when she returned to school for her career change. If you enjoy this book, then you should really read Death's Acre by Dr. Bass, the man who trained Emily Craig to become the anthropologist she is today.

The ponderous, self involved style of this book makes it next to impossible to read. As a forensic tome, it is utterly useless and if it was designed to either "entertain" or "inform" it fails miserably. This was the first time I've ever not finished a book I started. A piece of trash.
