Publisher's Summary

No Stone Unturned recreates the genesis of NecroSearch International: a small, eclectic group of scientists and law enforcement personal, active and retired, who volunteer their services to help locate the clandestine graves of murder victims and recover the remains and evidence to assist with the apprehension and conviction of the killers. Known early on as "the pig people" because of their experiments in locating graves using the carcasses of pigs (due to their similarities to human bodies), NecroSearch has evolved and expanded into one of the most respected forensic investigation teams in the world.
In No Stone Unturned, New York Times best-selling author Steve Jackson, the author of Bogeyman and Monster, vividly tells the story of this incredible group and recounts some of their most memorable early cases that separately would make great true crime books. Following his participation in a NecroSearch expedition to Russia looking for the remains of a Russian noble in 2013, Jackson was made an honorary member of NecroSearch International in November 2014.


What the Critics Say

"A fascinating journey into the trenches of crime [investigation]" (Lowell Cauffiel, New York Times best-selling author of House of Secrets)
"The book covers the group's quirky beginnings and digs into its most important cases suspensefully; Jackson's sharp eye misses nothing in the painstakingly rendered details. A must-have for true crime fans, it should also be of great interest to anyone fascinated with the practical applications of science." (Publisher's Weekly)
" No Stone Unturned delves into cases that would make good novels, but they're real. Furthermore, he describes a group of uncommon people performing uncommon tasks, and he does it with respect, accuracy and genuine style." (Ron Franscell)

This book, though a little long winded in parts, is of interest to anyone following the development of forensic science in the pursuit of criminals in this modern age. It documents the story of a group of dedicated scientists who came together to search for long hidden bodies and the prosecution of their murderers who thought they had got away with their crime.
Well written and well read.

A ‘must read’ for those interested in Forensic Science

This book gives a wonderful personal perspective on the developments that helped make forensic science an indispensable tool for Police Forces searching for murder victims.
We are introduced to ‘The Pig People’, a motivated and professional group of volunteers who have decided to share their knowledge and expertise in a variety of disciplines, to assist the Police in bringing justice and closure to victims and their families through the application of science.
Case studies demonstrate the dedication, professionalism and drive demonstrated by all the parties involved in the extensive preparation, search and hopefully, successful recovery of a victim’s body.
