Publisher's Summary

As a medical detective of the modern world, forensic pathologist Ryan Blumenthal’s chief goal is to bring perpetrators to justice. He has performed thousands of autopsies, which have helped bring numerous criminals to book.

In Autopsy he covers the hard lessons learnt as a rookie pathologist, as well as some of the most unusual cases he’s encountered. During his career, for example, he has dealt with high-profile deaths, mass disasters, death by lightning and people killed by African wildlife.

Blumenthal takes the listener behind the scenes at the mortuary, describing a typical autopsy and the instruments of the trade. He also shares a few trade secrets, like how to establish when a suicide is more likely to be a homicide.

Even though they cannot speak, the dead have a lot to say - and Blumenthal is there to listen.

Wonderful and made me long for Africa

Interesting anecdotes and pragmatic life advice.
The narrator is an absolute pleasure to listen to - smooth and calming tone. Really enjoyed it. About to listen again!

Captivating

This book was fascinating, the material easy to understand and gives a glimps into a world many of us are unaware of. I was sad when I reached the end. The writer is knowledgeable and very human. I loved the book.

Disappointing

At least three times the Author mentions how poorly paid he is - can't help but think this is just a rushed cash grab to supplement his income, especially when you can count on one hand the amount of cases he talks about that he was actually involved in. No real detail and lots of pseudo philosophical filler in what is a very short read. Switches constantly between assuming lots of medical knowledge and explaining things in layperson terms. Possibly a good read if Autopsy and forensic pathology are completely new words in your vocabulary.
