The remainder of the book focuses on Snow's more exciting work, such as the identification of Josef Mengele's bones in Argentina. It deals a lot with Snow's work with human rights organizations, identifying the bones of those slaughtered by their oppressive governments. Snow continues that work around the world to this day, and it is interesting reading--to a point.
The authors give good details concerning the events that lead to the untimely demise of thousands of innocent people, mostly in Argentina during late 1970's when the military junta was in power, and explains why Snow is involved in vindicating the dead there. However, they get a bit melodramatic in their descriptions of everything from the grave openings to Snow's work the several students who served as his assistants. After a while, we get the picture that Snow's work has served to put many a would-be despot in prison, and we come to understand Snow's view that the worst crime of all is a crime against a person by that person's own government. But there reaches a point where the human rights discussion just becomes tedious. Yes, you want to read more about Snow's exploits, but you find yourself wishing that they will be anywhere but Argentina, and that they will involve someone other than a person murdered by an oppressive government.
On the whole, it's a good read, and I'd recommend it to others interested in forensic science. Don't feel bad if you don't read it cover to cover though. To be honest, by the time you decide to put it down you have probably read enough that, if you don't finish it, you won't be missing anything.
