Working Stiff: Two Years, 262 Bodies, and the Making of a Medical Examiner

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Dr. Judy Melinek, T. J. Mitchell

Narrated By: Tanya Eby

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: August 2014

Duration: 7 hours 45 minutes

Summary:

Just two months before the September 11 terrorist attacks, Dr. Judy Melinek began her training as a New York City forensic pathologist. With her husband and their toddler holding down the home front, Judy threw herself into the fascinating world of death investigation-performing autopsies, investigating death scenes, and counseling grieving relatives. Working Stiff chronicles Judy's two years of training, taking listeners behind the police tape of some of the most harrowing deaths in the Big Apple.


Lively, action-packed, and loaded with mordant wit, Working Stiff offers a firsthand account of daily life in one of America's most arduous professions. The body never lies-and through the murders, accidents, and suicides that land on her table, Dr. Melinek lays bare the truth behind the glamorized depictions of autopsy work to reveal the secret story of the real morgue.

    I love true crime and I listen to the Sword and Scale podcast all the time. Judy was on an episode so I thought I would check out her book. I loved it! This is a thrilling inside look at what a ME's life is like and it's super interesting.

    Fascinating. Well written. The behind the scenes of 9/11 was an aspect of that time I hadn't looked into before.

  • Jessica G.

    A great read. I loved this book. A great testament to those people who answer questions of our loved ones. I was especially impressed with how the team managed through the 9-1-1 tragedy. If she writes any more books, I will definitely read them!!!
