Editorial Reviews

Review

"Indispensable . . . Don't even think of writing a medical mystery without the wise counsel of Dr. D. P. Lyle."
- Lee Goldberg, author of the Diagnosis Murder and Monk novels
 
"A terrific resource for crime writers and anyone interested in forensics . . . will jump-start your imagination about all kinds of ingenious crimes, crime-solving techniques, and plot twists."
- Matt Witten, supervising producer of the Fox TV show House
 
"Every crime-fiction author's best friend . . . as essential to my library as my Strunk and White."
- Hallie Ephron, author of Writing and Selling Your Mystery Novel
 
"There's damn good reason why Dr. Doug Lyle's e-mail is in every crime writer's address book and why his reference books belong on every aspiring writer's book shelf: His advice comes from the head of a medical expert but also from the heart and imagination of a writer. Whenever I paint myself into a forensic corner, Dr. Doug is always there to rescue me."
- P. J. Parrish, author of An Unquiet Grave

Lyle, M.D., is the Macavity Award–winning and Edgar Award–nominated author of the nonfiction books Murder and Mayhem: A Doctor Answers Medical and Forensic Questions for Mystery Writers, a compilation of the most interesting questions he has received over the years, and Forensics for Dummies, an in-depth look into the world of forensic science.

            Dr. Lyle is a practicing cardiologist in Orange County, California, and has worked as a story and technical consultant with many published authors and with the writers and producers of several popular television shows, including Law & Order, CSI: Miami, Diagnosis Murder, Monk, Judging Amy, Cold Case, Peacemakers, House, Medium, and 1-800-Missing.
