Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
In this macabre and moving compilation of the most embarrassing, jaw-dropping, irreverent and deeply poignant stories of life at death's door, readers are given a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of morticians and funeral directors. Morticians have plenty of unusual stories to tell, from shoot-outs at funerals to dead men screaming and corpses gone missing. Some are frightening, others will move readers to tears. But one thing is certain: death drives people crazy!
First calls and removals -- Where art meets science -- Family matters -- Wakes, funerals and burials -- In our private lives.
From rookie mistakes and runaway corpses to screaming dead men and unusual requests, a collection of stories by funeral directors.
