I remember reading "the body farm", a great book about one of the first US body farms -- places where they set bodies to decay to monitor what happens.

One part was regarding the effect of burning on bodies and how they could recognize if a car was burnt intentionally and if the bodies were alive / dead / planted when the car was set on fire due to how the muscles may contract.



It was great reading in secondary school class and great if the teacher looked at the books people were reading as it also had excellent pictures and figures.
