Pittsburgh journalist John Temple spent time in the Allegheny County Coroner's Office, riding out with its personnel on calls to collect bodies and returning to watch the autopsies. Temple imparts a general impression of forensic pathology, and his accounts of two female interns' reactions to the sights and smells provide a reality check for readers considering the career. Temple provides minihistories of the office of coroner, how it differs from that of a medical examiner, and the techniques of forensics.
