Summary and Info
Dead Reckoning is a collection of modern-day true crime cases that are equivalent to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes crime stories of the Victorian era. Nordby effectively employs the science of deductive reasoning and critical thinking to descriptively capture and recreate the details surrounding a diverse collection of crimes. Crime scene techniques are so well described, the scenes come alive in the mind's eye in each chapter. Cleverly woven into each case are vivid intricacies of specialized disciplines such as medicine, pathology, anthropology, histology, or entomology. This book is versatile enough to appeal to scholars of logic, crime scene investigation, creative writers, and even the novice reader of nonfiction as well as fictional crime stories. It could easily be used as a supplemental text in many academic disciplines. As a skilled forensic investigator, the author creatively shares an inside view in his book into a macabre world many people cannot even begin to imagine.
