His work has been vital for the sake of science and the cause of justice In Beyond the Body Farm Jefferson Bass details the most memorable cases from his career, including alibis he has broken, cold cases he has solved - including one from the Ancient world that took him to Iran - and several cases he has been able to revisit throughout his career as new techniques have become possible and scientific discoveries made.

    Authors:
    Michael C. White
    Elizabeth Moynihan, a New York journalist, has hit the jackpot. It's 1996 and a chance remark has sent her to a small farm in Colorado. There resides Russia's most notorious sniper-turned-spy, the one-time beautiful assassin, Tat'yana Levchenko, and Elizabeth knows this story could make her career. When Elizabeth convinces the obstinate and embittered Tat'yana that it is now safe to tell the truth, the old lady begins the story of a mother so devoted to her beautiful daughter that when, aged just four, her child was shot down and killed by a German pilot, all she had to live for was revenge. Enlisting immediately as a sniper, Tat'yana soon racked up three hundred kills and became her nation's most celebrated soldier.But it couldn't last forever, and when she was badly injured during a siege, her superiors had new plans. Eleanor Roosevelt had asked for her to visit the US and tour the nation in a bid to help the war effort. For the Russian army, it was an excellent opportunity to spy for her country. For Tat'yana, it was the chance of a new life.
