4.0 out of 5 stars.  The Dead Do Talk, February 18, 2016
By SylJ - Amazon Customer
Very interesting. Dr. Maples is an expert in forensics & he takes you through years of his work in great detail. His descriptive narrative gives clear pictures making you feel like you are there looking on the crime scene or in the lab with him. I particularly liked the chapter on "Old Rough and Ready. "

4.0 out of 5 stars.  Not an "easy" read but worth it., January 21, 2016
By Anti-Federalist
Not an "easy" read but worth it. Be advised that this book was written prior to universal access to DNA evidence. I'm unsure of the date it was published but it has a mid 1990's feel to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  That's how much I liked it. Dr, December 16, 2015
By Teresa Iodice
It was the first book I ever read on forensic anthropology. I was mesmerized. I could not put the book down. I think I read the book in 4 hours. If I were a younger, non matriculated student, that book would have influenced me to become a forensic anthropologist. That's how much I liked it. Dr. Maples remains, in my opinion, one of the smartest, most cunning scientists in the field of forensic anthropology.
