Publisher's Summary

"To be able to thrive in a field most are terrified of is a source of pride.... To be in the presence of those who have crossed over the great divide is oddly meaningful, in an ultimate sense."  

In this sequel to Silent Siren: Memoirs of a Lifesaving Mortician, ride along with mortuary removal technician Matthew Franklin Sias as he cares for the deceased in rural Washington State.  

Step into the hidden world of death care and explore the challenge of removing the deceased from the often-difficult, regularly awkward, and sometimes downright bizarre circumstances in which they die, the art and science of embalming, and the intrigue of forensic pathology.  

Sias is a veteran death investigator, former funeral director/embalmer intern, and paramedic with 28 years of emergency response experience.

Very interesting sequel

This sequel to his first book was more descriptive than I expected but he did warn the reader at the beginning. I was fine with it mostly I just couldn't listen to it during meals. I did enjoy the book but gave it three stars like I should have to his first book for his fat shaming comments. It was no better than book one and really very disturbing. I nearly turned it off and requested a refund. To the Author: Please stop fat shaming people. It only serves to make you look bad.

Another great book!

Another great book filled with interesting stories. The only thing that kinda bothered me in both books was his description of obese people. I'm aware that caring for them is more difficult, but I felt that comparing the one person to livestock was kinda disrespectful and mean.
