The Chemistry of Death

Post by Starrie_Lufer on Fri May 15, 2009 9:35 am

The Chemistry of Death written by Simon Beckett. Hope you enjoy. (P.S. My book review will only be about Chapter 1 story. It has many chapters.) Here goes:
A human body starts to decompose four minutes after death. Once the encapsulation of life, it now undergoes its final metamorphoses. It begins to digest itself. Cells dissolve from the inside out. Tissue turns to liquid, then to gas. No longer animate, the body becomes an immovable feast for other organisms. Bacteria first, then insects. Files. Eggs are laid, then hatch. The larvae feed on the nutrient-rich broth, and then miragte. They leave the body in orderly fashion, following each other in a neat procession that always heads south. South-east or south-west sometimes, but never north. No-one knows why.
By now the body's muscle protein has broken down, producing a potent chemical brew. In the right conditions-dry and hot, say, without rain.-it can extend for yards, a wavering brown conga-line of fat yellow grubs. It's a curious sight, and for the curious what could be more natural than to follow this phenomenon back to its source? Which was how the Yates boys found what was left for Sally Palmer.
Neil and Sam came across the maggot trail on the edge of Farnham wood, where it borders the marsh. It was the second week of July, and already the unnatural summer seemed to have been going on for ever. The heat seemed eternal, leaching the colour form the trees and baking the ground to the hardness of bone. The boys were on their way to Willow Hole, a reed pond that passed as the local swimming pool. They were meeting friends there, and would spend the Sunday afternoon bombing into the tepid green water from an overhanging tree. At least, so they thought. Until, they smell a strange smell. Something very fishy and smelly, Sam head for the direction, and then screamed. "Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!" Neil heard it and ran over to his brother, to discover a dead body of someone. Someone they don't know...
That's all. The story isn't finished yet.
