Dabei erfährt sie Einzelheiten zu der Mordserie an älteren Frauen in Bremerhaven und nimmt Einblick in die Akten über eine junge Frau aus Sachsen, die behauptet hat, von Neonazis verletzt worden zu sein, als sie ein kleines Mädchen vor deren Übergriffen schützen will. Ihr soll sogar ein Preis für Zivilcourage verliehen werden. Doch es kommen Zweifel an der Geschichte der Frau auf. Die genauen Untersuchungsmethoden der Rechtsmediziner sollen hier Licht ins Dunkel bringen.
Fast kurios muten die autoerotischen Unfälle an, von denen die Mediziner berichten. Doch auch diese Fälle greift Puhlfürst als weiteres aspect der forensischen Arbeit auf und gewährt dem Leser Einblicke in den Obduktionssaal und die Arbeit dort, die sie plastisch und verständlich zu beschreiben vermag.
Gewohnt meisterhaft erzählt Puhlfürst von grauenhaften Morden, aufsehenerregenden Verbrechen und eigentümlichen Todesfällen - eine packende Lektüre.
