      Anatomy of Murder was written by Bill Pomidor and published by Penguin Group in 1996.

      The husband and wife team Dr Plato Marley was in geriatrics; while Dr Cal was a forensic pathologist at Seigel Medical College. At Cal’s tuition class for her medical students, she discovered that the cadaver of Marilyn Abel, had a broken thyroid cartilage, which meant that her death was due to either suffocation or strangling.

Apart from the pathological and medical procedures that were not easily understood, the book was rather entertaining.
