Rating: You Need to Read
No one has performed more autopsies in high-profile cases than Dr. Cyril Wecht. During the past four decades, he has dissected more than 16,000 bodies to determine how and why they died. He has testified in hundreds of trials and exhumed dozens of corpses. He’s investigated the deaths of presidents and princes, coal miners and Hollywood stars.
From the tragic homicides of Laci Peterson and Nicole Brown Simpson to the mysteries that surround the deaths of JonBenét Ramsey and Natalee Hollaway, CNN, MSNBC, FOX News, the New York Times, and scores of other publications constantly call upon Dr. Wecht to provide his expert analysis.
A Question of Murder is a fascinating read that was difficult to put down. I love reading about high profile cases and not sure what exactly draws me to them. I guess some sort of morbid intrigue. This book goes into detail about the cases of Daniel Smith, Anna Nicole Smith, Stephanie Crow, Danielle van Dam, Laci Peterson (a big reason why I read this book), Nicole Brown Simpson and many more.
I enjoyed being taken behind the scenes and given information that was very new to me. I was surprised how in contact Howard Stern was with the author of this book. The one part that I had difficulties with were the Daniel and Nicole Smith parts of the book. The two cases together were about half of the book and there was so much repetitive information that was unnecessary. I do see though how one might need this information included if they skipped chapters and just read one of the cases.
The repetitive parts aside though, I thought this was one very well research and extremely vivid book that focused on the forensic parts of the cases. I highly recommend this book who is a follower of high profile cases. There are definitely nuggets of information in each story that has not be highly publicized until now. Don't miss out on the opportunity to read this book.
