By Cynric Temple-Camp

March 25, 2021

From the number-one bestselling author of The Cause of Death comes a book about the unlikely, extraordinary, obscure and often tragic ways humans meet their demise.

A dead body without a trace of trauma; alien parasites; worms of the brain; crocodile attacks and bizarre eating disorders…In The Quick and the Dead, pathologist and self-confessed death aficionado Dr Cynric Temple-Camp takes readers into a world of disease and death as he seeks answers for those who were unlikely, and those still alive to tell the tale.
