What The Dead Know (2023)  

In What the Dead Know, Barbara Butcher  writes with the kind of New York attitude and bravado you might expect from decades in the field, investigating more than 5,500 death scenes, 680 of which were homicides.

In the opening chapter, she describes how just from sheer luck of having her arm in a cast, she avoided a boobytrapped suicide.

Later in her career, she describes working the nation’s largest mass murder, the attack on 9/11, where she and her colleagues initially relied on family members’ descriptions to help distinguish among the 21,900 body parts of the victims.
