On a wooded hillside in Tennessee blowflies, bacteria and buzzards feast on human flesh, unhindered by coffins or mausoleums. They're buried in shallow graves; submerged in tanks of water; concealed under slabs of concrete; locked in the boots and backseats of rusting cars. They are serving the needs of science in the cause of justice.

In DEATH'S ACRE Dr Bill Bass, the facility's founder and one of the world's leading forensic scientists, describes how he created it and how the work of he and his colleagues have brought murderers to justice and cleared the names of the innocent. Within a riveting narrative he details his own career and the many criminal cases he has been involved in, bringing forensic science vividly to life and highlighting its crucial role in modern day policing.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Bass's moving account is a surprisingly accessible read. * THE TIMES *
It embraces some of the great issues: the perpetual conflict of good versus evil, and the human virtues of enthusiasm, commitment and intellectual inquiry. It just happens, also, to be extremely well written. * James Le Fanu, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
Blackly funny and unsparing in its clinical detail, this is a fascinating documentary of forensic research as well as an eye-opening adjunct to the novels of murder and mayhem to which we are addicted. * GOOD BOOK GUIDE *
Sensitively written. * INK *

“Well researched”

This book is a must for true crime and crime fiction fans alike. Many crime fiction books now focus on forensics and pathology but the area of true crime has few books on the subject. This is one of the best out there.
