A Doctor's Initiation" and "Doctored: The story of how the author dealt with her father's suicide during childhood and later had to deal with suicides as part of her duties is wrenching and compelling. Whether dealing with routine autopsies, surviving relatives, or the catastrophe of September 11, Dr. Judy Melinek reveals the dignity of being human in the face of death. She strikes the balance just right in helping us better understand what we most fear, yet still fear it all the same.

A transfixing account of death, from the mundane to the oddly hair-raising. But it is also so much more than that: Seamlessly fusing memoir, science journalism, riveting whodunit mysteries, and light humor about a dark topic, Working Stiff is a relentlessly fascinating and informative book from the first page to the last. Judy Melinek--whether she's re-enacting assaults in a courtroom while heavily pregnant, or fighting with lazy homicide detectives, or solving amazing forensic mysteries through the ghastly things she does with her corpses--is an unfailingly charming and even inspiring guide to the world of medical examiners.

A remarkable achievement by Mitchell and Melinek. Melinek is movingly empathetic toward the families of victims.

An unforgettable story.
