Death means the end of life, but it is not the end of adventure. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Death opens up a whole new world of crazy escapades and extreme exploits - all encountered without the worry of death or injury.
From the beginnings of the âdeath tradeâ - digging into the profits made from mummy commerce, and the use of body parts for medicine (which continues to this day) - to accounts of posthumous executions, as well as sordid stories of crazed collectors, and even cases of celebrity cadavers stolen and held for ransom, After Life: True Tales of the Restless Dead uncovers all of these true tales, and more.
Author J. Pednaudâs After Life: True Tales of the Restless Dead is filled with oddly riveting accounts of unusual posthumous episodes, as well as earnest observations on mankindâs fascination with death. Pednaud somehow presents the world of the dead with both facts and humour strong enough to keep us turning the page, even if we find ourselves doing it with our hands over our eyes.
