Like New Condition, uncreased spine

'Mass graves, actual skeletons in the closet, and a host of homicides steeped in bizarre clues and buried secrets - they're all in a day's work for one detective whose job begins when life ends. As a forensic anthropologist, Robert Mann listens to the stories the dead have to tell; he is the corpse whisperer.

In this revealing casebook, Mann offers a portrait of a profession which is gruesome, dangerous and compelling. Read how he finally identified Jeffrey Dahmer's first victim, despite the serial killer's efforts to conceal the truth. Follow the grim dismantling of the Poughkeepsie 'House of Horrors' and join Mann in the heartbreaking task of sifting through human remains at the Pentagon crash-site on 11 September 2001.'
