This is an auction for SILENT WITNESS: HOW FORENSIC ANTHROPOLOGY IS USED TO SOLVE THE WORLD'S TOUGHEST CRIMES, by Roxana Ferllini.

"Forensic anthropologists identify skeletal remains where bones are the only evidence, often by reconstructing the skeleton to analyse the traumas inflicted on the body, whether intentional or accidental. Introducing her profession, Ferllini surveys its techniques and place among the disciplines of pathology applied to solving crimes or establishing identities. Aided by hundreds of colour photos, she describes skeletal differences between male and female, between young and old, and then proceeds to analysis of the environment in which the body is found, which invariably leaves tell-tale clues on the bones in the course of decomposition or destruction. Although her explanations are clinical, Ferllini possesses the ability to communicate the solace that the forensic anthropologist's closure can provide to loved ones and to society at large."
- Booklist (US)

"Ferllini draws on her wide experience to produce a fascinating look at her profession's capability to illuminate history's mysteries and to assist in investigations of crime scenes. The text is complemented with photos and illustrations, 350 of which are in full colour. What readers will find most intriguing are the 29 case studies, ranging from a 1745 murder to the 1996 ValuJet crash in the Florida Everglades, and from the known (the Oklahoma City bombing) to the obscure."
