Author's Note --Some may think this is a cruel and shocking story. It is cruel, though, only in the sense that men are cruel, for men motivated the events which I have described here. And it is shocking only because few citizens ever stop to give thought to the little drama known as The Inquest - or to the old-fashioned and inept coroner system which still manages to bumble along in parts of our country.Many attorneys, physicians, reporters and politicians have been good enough to clarify the procedures for me, and I am indebted to them.In the sense that these events could happen, this is a true story, and I have attempted to make it as graphic and as accurate as possible.Editor's Note --In this new book, the author of Wake Up and Scream takes us behind the scenes for an electrifying glimpse into some of the most insidious double-dealings and gutter morals of our day.
