    Description

    Teasing Secrets from the Dead is a front-lines story of crime scene investigation at some of the most infamous sites in recent history.

    In this absorbing, surprising, and undeniably compelling book, forensics expert Emily Craig tells her own story of a life spent teasing secrets from the dead.

    Emily Craig has been a witness to history, helping to seek justice for thousands of murder victims, both famous and unknown. It’s a personal story that you won’t soon forget. Emily first became intrigued by forensics work when, as a respected medical illustrator, she was called in by the local police to create a model of a murder victim’s face. Her fascination with that case led to a dramatic midlife career change: She would go back to school to become a forensic anthropologist - and one of the most respected and best-known “bone hunters” in the nation.

    As a student working with the FBI in Waco, Emily helped uncover definitive proof that many of the Branch Davidians had been shot to death before the fire, including their leader, David Koresh, whose bullet-pierced skull she reconstructed with her own hands. Upon graduation, Emily landed a prestigious full-time job as forensic anthropologist for the Commonwealth of Kentucky, a state with an alarmingly high murder rate and thousands of square miles of rural backcountry, where bodies are dumped and discovered on a regular basis. 

    But even with her work there, Emily has been regularly called to investigations across the country, including the site of the terrorist attack on the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, where a mysterious body part - a dismembered leg - was found at the scene and did not match any of the known victims. Through careful scientific analysis, Emily was able to help identify the leg’s owner, a pivotal piece of evidence that helped convict Timothy McVeigh.

    From the biggest news stories of our time to stranger-than-true local mysteries, these unforgettable stories come from Emily Craig’s remarkable career.

    HUGE true crime fan but this was not for me

    HUGE true crime fan but this was not for me. I think that someone interested in the field of CSI would definitely enjoy it. for me it was way too detailed on the scene and lacking on the murder stories themselves.
    Author does a great job reading (isn't always the case).

    Interesting career, for sure.

    She began her forensic career "late in life" and rose to excellence as a forensic anthropologist. Waco, Oklahoma City, and WTC. Wow!

    Captivating

    Very fascinating book. Kept me wanting to hear more. You won't be disappointed. Narrator knows what she is doing.

    A vanity project.

    I love true crime and forensics, but this book was terrible. The author is way more interested in bragging than in getting a narrative across. I jokingly told my husband that she would probably think she had identified Jimmy Hoffa at some point, and, sure enough, there it was. Her career has some triumphs, to be sure, but she truly sounds like she thinks she is the most important person in any room she enters.

    So inspiring for a forensic anthro student!

    I loved every moment of this and I am even more motivated to further my education. Dr. Craig is such an inspiration.

    Brutally honest

    Dr. Emily Graig managed to capture the essence of a darker side of being disposable in a brilliant narrative of fact, empathy and compassion that is rare. She made it easy to understand the science and and the (he)art of forensic anthropology. I wish for more! And of coarse Carrington MacDuffie is an outstanding narrator who did this masterpiece justice.

    Fantastic Read

    This book is well written. It includes the science and explanation to make the stories easy to get sucked into it. Highly recommend!
