    I found this book to be a really fascinating read. It is a collection of questions that a doctor has recieved over the years from people who are trying to write a novel. Questions range from the effects of posions and drugs on the body, to proper procedures at a crime scene and everything else in between. Many of the questions' authors are anonymous, but there were a few from authors that I recognized, which added a nice bit of flavor to the read.There were times when the book became a little dr [...]

    Delightful and informative! Delightful because of the obvious admiration for and interest in his author's letters; informative because of all the science (most of which I promptly forgot.)

    There are three books by this author, all covering similar subjects. They are very well organized and it's very obvious that the author takes an interest in the writer's questions, providing great feedback and even encouragement. Other than the fact that the three books tend to repeat some of the topics, I would definitely recommend these to any writer who wants to create credible mysteries and thrillers.

    Forensics and Fiction is a seriously cool book. The book is set up as a series of questions from crime writers, with responses from Dr. Lyle: Can a chiropractic adjustment lead to death? How would a mummified corpse be identified? Could my character hide inside a corpse? What toxic gas could be used to kill a roomful of people?If any of those questions intrigue you, pick up a copy. Though I haven't written a lot of mystery and don't really need this kind of research, it's fascinating to skim thr [...]

    Fantastic resource for crime writers, or, it should be said, the criminal element. All sorts of easy to understand and fun explanations of how to kill off characters, how to conceal bodies, about decay and forensics of all sorts. Written in a chatty question and answer format, I can't recommend this book highly enough, whether you kill people in fiction or you just want to talk about it at family dinner parties.

    The questions were intriguing, the answers were kind of interesting but surprisingly there was a lot of redundancy. If you are a medical geek you might enjoy it. If you are looking for off the wall Q & A the last chapter might be interesting for you otherwise I'm glad I got it from the library and didn't buy it. If you are an author and are killing off someone in your story and need some medical advice this might help.

    I couldn't pass up this book because it combines the new course I'm going to be teaching this year at my high school (forensics) along with my interest in writing. The author's answers to the questions varied from fascinating to a little on the mundane side, partly due to the repetition. Definitely glad I read it, but hopefully not the best book I'll find on the subject.

    This is a must have book for crime/thriller writers! The book is straight to the point. The author, who is a doctor, fielded many questions from writers about what happens in real life, and he answers from a medical perspective. This book will help me write more realistic scenes. It's also a blast to read some of the twisted (fun) ideas authors come up with for their books.

    A slow read, but chocked full of great info I might need someday as a writer. I hope to buy my own copy soon to have on hand. Just make sure you aren't faint of heart, he gives good descriptions as to what would happen in various situations!

    I really enjoy these books. It has helped me kill off a few characters in totally unique ways. I have also learned how to kill someone and make it look like an accident (highly useful but scary) some of the questions authors ask amuse me so I would highly suggest you not read while drinking!

    An absolute must for a crime writer in the modern age when forensics play such a key role in the mystery/crime/thriller genre. It's a keeper for my reference library.

    I loved this book. It was full of fascinating, if sometimes weird, information, and I enjoyed reading it.

    Very fascinating and interesting. I learned a lot of about the human body and forensic. Highly recommended for everyone who are interested in learning about forensic and the human body.

    All those crazy questions writers have, Dr. Lyle (patiently, I admit) answers many. His responses are well thought-out and useful. Highly recommended.
