Synopsis

Never look at a grave the same way again

Admit it: You're fascinated by cemeteries. We all die, and for most of us, a cemetery is our final resting place. But how many people really know what goes on inside, around, and beyond them?

Enter the world of the dead as Katherine Ramsland talks to mortuary assistants, gravediggers, funeral home owners, and more, and find out about:

  • Stitching and cosmetic secrets used on mutilated bodies
  • Embalmers who do more than just embalm
  • The rising popularity of cremation art
  • Ghosts that infest graveyards everywhere

If you've ever scoffed at the high price of burying the dead, or ever wondered how your loved ones are handled when they die, or simply stared at tombstones with morbid fascination, then take a trip with Katherine Ramsland and learn about the booming industry -- and strange tales -- that surround cemeteries everywhere.

    Fascinating

    Very well written. Surprised even me (a very experienced uk funeral director). Shame there are some sickos who bring my profession into disrepute. The author has obviously researched painstakingly.

    Yuk

    Not for the faint hearted there is some pretty sick stuff in here, good if you wish to write a horror story and shock though. The depths of human depravity never cease to amaze me. Fascinating and vile at the same time.
