From Inkshares.com, when describing Doyle Burke’s book “Death As A Living”. “For most of us, death is a part of life – but one part that we think about only reluctantly. For Burke, death is his living – mostly violent death. For more than 30 years, involving more than 1,000 cases, Burke has been a death investigator, first with the Dayton, Ohio police department, then with a county coroner’s office.”
