Mit dem Tod ist keinesfalls alles vorbei. Leichen sind auf vielfältige Weise nützlich, indem sie Forschung und Wissenschaft zur Verfügung stehen. Sie helfen dabei, Autos sicherer zu machen, dienen als Anschauungs- und Übungsobjekte für angehende Ärzte und geben Gerichtsmedizinern wichtige Hinweise, mit denen Verbrechen aufgeklärt werden können. Sie wurden ins All geschossen, haben die ersten Guillotinen und sogar die Echtheit des Turiner Grabtuchs getestet. Mary Roach hat die vielfältigen postmortalen Verwendungsformen recherchiert und mit Ärzten, Wissenschaftlern und Leichenbestattern darüber gesprochen, was man mit Leichen alles anfangen kann. Daraus ist ein überaus unterhaltsames, faszinierendes und skurriles Buch entstanden, auch wenn die Hauptakteure in Anatomiesälen, Laboratorien und Krematorien zu finden sind.
