Unnatural Death: Confessions of a Medical Examiner Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

* JFK's autopsy failed to disclose crucial evidence.

* The deaths of John Belushi and Elvis Presley were far more complex than anyone has let on.

* Decisive medical findings in the von Bulow affair were consistently overlooked.

These are but three of the shocking revelations in Dr. Michael Baden's first-person, no-holds-barred account of his distinguished career in forensic pathology. In determining the causes of tens of thousands of deaths, from those of presidents and rock stars to victims of serial killings, exotic sex rituals, mass disasters, child abuse and drug abuse, Baden has come to the unavoidable conclusion that the search for scientific truth is often sullied by the pressures of expediency. He produces dramatic evidence to demonstrate that political intrigue, influence peddling, and professional incompetence have created a national crisis in forensic medicine.

"A fascinating look into the mechanics of forensics and a disconcerting lesson in the politics of death." — The New York Times Book Review
