“Yet another absolutely fascinating exploration of the depths crime fiction authors plumb but could not do so without the brilliant medical and forensic expertise of D. P. Lyle, MD. Where else could you find answers to queries like “Was arsenic traceable in 1950s England?” or “Could DNA from spontaneously combusted vampires reveal their age?” All are graciously responded to with sound medical theory and an eye to the dramatic possibilities which every author requires. Doug is always my go-to guy for medical or forensic expertise, and More Forensics and Fiction is another superb addition to his stable. A must for every crime fiction writer’s bookshelf.”
