More than a few Hollywood stars, rock goddesses, and politicos ended up under the practiced hands of former Los Angeles County coroner Thomas Noguchi, who chronicles their tragic--and occasionally controversial--causes of death in this memoir. Forced to step down from his position in 1982 after he was criticized for being too open with the media, Noguchi published this tell-all, describing some of the most famous autopsies he performed as well as some of his more peculiar cases. Addressing scandals such as Marilyn Monroe's possible affair with Robert Kennedy and the conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination of RFK himself, this morbidly fascinating book is a blend of Hollywood secrets and criminological science. Un buen numero de estrellas de cine, diosas del rock y politicos terminaron bajo las manos expertas del ex medico forense del condado de Los Angeles Thomas Noguchi, quien relata sus tragicas--y de vez en cuando controversiales--causas de muerte en este libro de memorias. Obligado a dimitir de su cargo en 1982 despues de ser criticado por hablar demasiado libremente con la prensa, Noguchi publico este relato revelador que describe algunas de las autopsias mas famosas que hizo, asi como algunos de sus casos mas peculiares. Discutiendo escandalos controversiales como la posible relacion entre Marilyn Monroe y Robert Kennedy y las teorias de conspiracion que rodean el asesinato del mismo RFK, este libro morbosamente fascinante es una mezcla de los secretos de Hollywood y de la ciencia criminologica.
