Melinek takes the reader through making her decision to go into pathology after after a grueling and almost career-ending stint as a general surgeon. I for one am glad she did because this book is the story of her training at the medical examiner's office in New York City, learning how to determine and document the manner and mode of human deaths.

Additionally, she was in New York and involved in her training on September 11, and became part of the enormous team of doctors recruited to examine, identify, and document the human remains of that tragedy. I thoroughly enjoyed this book - basically couldn't put it down, and kudos also to Dr.

Melinek's husband, T. She takes you, in a gentle way, through the work of a medical examiner conducting autopsies after a huge variety of causes of death.

It is as though you are in the room for the autopsies You hear the stories of what happened to people prior to them ending up in the New York City ME's office.

I could not get to the next page fast enough. The most touching part of the book was a total surprise to me I let my friend borrow this book - she finished it and before she even got it back to me had searched for more work by Melinek. I hope she writes more books!

Although I am a medical professional who deals with many gory bodies and scenes, I sometimes found Judy Melinek's self-described trials and tribulations as a medical examiner hard to read.

Therefore, my squeamish stomach serves as a testament to Ms. Melinek's strong writing ability. Stimulating the reader's five senses, the author allows the reader to personally experience and understand a medical examiner's professional and ethical duties. In addition, her candid stories disprove the stereotypically derived cold personality associated with a medical examiner.

She describes many instances in which a medical examiner's compassion, meticulousness, and diligence allow detectives to ring the bells of justice and ultimately, bring peace or closure to the dead victims' families. See all 1, reviews.
