But, he has an insight that only a professional doctor/coroner experiences as the first person when confronted with the daily gore and bloodlust that so often characterizes violent American society. It also seems that California, more than any other state, is the epicenter of such gruesome crimes.
Dr.Noguchi brings us along to see firsthand his observations concerning the violence associated with Sharon Tate, the Manson Gang, Marilyn Monroe, Belushi, William Holden, etc and other famous suicide, overdoses and murders. Noguchi's distillation of what really happened refutes many conclusions we in the general public believe as fact.
The author gives us a view of such grisly crimes as if we were there, too..
It's hard to put down this book after starting to rear it
Don't expect too much, but it is a quick read at 250 pages, large print; much of his whining about his defense can be skimmed over. I did learn facts I hadn't read before in chapters on Patty Hearst, Marilyn Monroe, Robert Kennedy, and Natalie Wood (although nothing drastic). Also, his description of how far forensic science had came in 20 years since Marilyn Monroe's death in 1962.
Again I would like to point out that the people doing the proofing of this book did not do their jobs very well as there were errors. I simply do not understand how professionals who write books can let errors in syntax, spelling, etc. pass. This happens over and over in ebooks.
