Mystery in the Morgue: Be a Pathologist

by Alix Wood

Part of a Series: Crime Solvers.

Sometimes detectives get the glory of being the crime solvers, but the true heroes are the scientists who give them the information they need to do their job. Forensic pathologists are experts in determining a person’s cause of death. This unique book is part narrative and part science text, explaining how pathologists use their knowledge of the human body to help solve mysteries. Readers will learn about the different aspects of this fascinating job while trailing a pathologist working on an exciting case. The clever and inviting design includes crime-scene photographs and Solve It! quiz boxes.
