No Stone Unturned: The True Story of the World's Premier Forensic Investigators (English Edition) Formato Kindle
|Nuovo a partire da||Usato da|
The New York Times bestselling author takes readers on “a fascinating journey into the trenches of crime [investigation]”—now revised and updated (Lowell Cauffiel, New York Times bestselling author).
A body stuffed in a car trunk swallowed by the swirling, muddy waters of the Missouri River. A hiker brutally murdered, then thrown off a steep embankment in a remote mountain range. A devious killer who hid his wife’s body under a thick cement patio.
For investigators, the story is often the same: they know a murder took place, they may even know who did it; but without key evidence, or a body, pursuing a conviction is nearly impossible. That’s when they call NecroSearch International, a brain trust of the nation’s top scientists in a wide variety of fields, who along with law enforcement, use the latest technology and field techniques to locate clandestine graves and hidden secrets to solve “unsolvable” crimes.
In No Stone Unturned, Steve Jackson—who became a member of NecroSearch International in 2015—gives a captivating, insider’s look into a realm of crime investigation of which few people are aware.
“The book covers the group’s quirky beginnings and digs into its most important cases suspensefully; Jackson’s sharp eye misses nothing in the painstakingly rendered details. A must-have for true crime fans, it should also be of great interest to anyone fascinated with the practical applications of science.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

It is written as a narrative and I don't think this really lends itself to this type of book. It doesn't read well.
The book is, essentially, a personal history of people who make up a unit that came together to find ways of discovering bodies 20-odd years ago. Personally, I don't really care about 10 people's education, their childhood etc. I am interested in the cases from start to finish. I'm 25% of the way through this book and the only cases mentioned have been minimal descriptions of them with no real in-depth analysis or story.
The chapters in this book are ridiculously long also. I'm 1/4 of the way through and there have only been 2 chapters.
I don't think I will be continuing with this book. If you like to know the personal history of every single person that is going to be mentioned in this book and like reading about someone going off on a tangent every few pages; then this is for you! Avoid if you actually want to read about cases.
