Criminal biologist DR. MARK BENECKE devotes himself in a bizarre to sometimes disgusting way to exciting questions that one would sometimes rather not have answered: Why, for example, are the fingernails of the bloated male corpse so long and what kind of maggot crawls out of the corner of its mouth at the same time?

A shocking and fascinating world. BENECKES analysis of various insects found on corpses has already put a stop to countless criminals worldwide.
