Death's Acre by Bill Bass
If you enjoy watching show's like CSI or Bones then you would also like this book about a real life forensic scientist. Dr. Bass started the "Body Farm" where dead bodies are allowed to decompose and the scientists observe what happens and when. It's because of the work at his body farm that we know about the bugs that eat dead bodies and how long someone has been dead and what type of saw has been used to cut up a dead body. Dr. Bass includes real stories from his long career helping to solve crimes and put murderers in jail.
