About this title


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 número de estrellas de cine, diosas del rock y políticos terminaron bajo las manos expertas del ex médico forense del condado de Los Ángeles Thomas Noguchi, quien relata sus trágicas—y de vez en cuando controversiales—causas de muerte en este libro de memorias. Obligado a dimitir de su cargo en 1982 después de ser criticado por hablar demasiado libremente con la prensa, Noguchi publicó este relato revelador que describe algunas de las autopsias más famosas que hizo, así como algunos de sus casos más peculiares. Discutiendo escándalos como la posible relación entre Marilyn Monroe y Robert Kennedy y las teorías de conspiración que rodean el asesinato del mismo RFK, este libro morbosamente fascinante es una mezcla de los secretos de Hollywood y de la ciencia criminológica.
