Although this isn’t technically a mystery, it won a CWA Gold Dagger for non-fiction, and looks quite interesting, especially for folks who like forensic mysteries. Written In Bone: hidden stories in what we leave behind, by Sue Black, is a forensic anthropologist’s view of our body’s bones. Per the blurb:
“What we eat, where we go, everything we do leaves a trace, a message that waits patiently for months, years, sometimes centuries, until a forensic anthropologist is called upon to decipher it….Limb by limb, case by case – some criminal, some historical, some unaccountably bizarre – Sue Black reconstructs with intimate sensitivity and compassion the hidden stories in what we leave behind.”
Written in Bone has dropped to £0.99 at Kindle US as part of today’s Daily Deal.
