Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his forty-year career, Michael Baden has conducted more than 20,000 autopsies. Considered one of the world's leading pathologists, he was New York City medical examiner from 1960 to 1985 and is now co-director of the New York State Police Medicolegal Investigation Unit. The host of the popular program Autopsy on HBO, Dr. Baden brings riveting stories and expert analysis to Dead Reckoning.<P>Along with award-winning writer Marion Roach, Dr. Baden, takes readers on a you-are-there tour of the morgue to demonstrate how the advances in forensic science are helping to solve crimes as never before. They visit cases, both famous and ordinary, to explain why the first hour at a crime scene is crucial. Readers are also invited to be present at the analysis of soil samples, plant matter, insects, blood spatters, bone, teeth, hair, weather, and other crime scene evidence to witness how they can improve the chances of a just verdict.<P>What Sherwin Nuland did for the science of death, Dr. Baden and Dead Reckoning does for the science of forensic pathology, offering what Tracy Kidder calls a "fascinating window into the world of the medical detective."

Review:

"Like Dorothy Parker, Ms. Heimel is an urban romantic with scathing X-ray vision that penetrates her most deeply cherished fantasies." The New York Times

Review:

"No boy should go out with a girl until she has read this book. It goes without saying that he should read it, too. I'm not bragging or anything, but I read parts of it twice." Roy Blount, Jr.

Review:

"This book (like sex itself) is both funny and serious, which is why it's such an instant classic." Michael Goldberg, San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"Cynthia [Heimel] is one of the authentic new humorists of our time, plus she is nice, sensible, your true sister under the skin. Sex Tips for Girls is for everyone, even boys, and nobody said older women shouldn't read it either. Thank God!" Liz Smith

Review:

"Heimel here is funny, smart, sympathetic, vulnerable, perceptive, and witty." Emily Vernon, New York Daily News

Review:

"Read this book. Please. It's the funniest, sassiest, truest book about men and women on the market." Michele Ross, The Atlanta Journal
