Fifteen Thousand Pieces: A Medical Examiner’s Journey through disaster

Fifteen Thousand Pieces delves into the struggles faced by the incredible people who provided support in the aftermath of the September 1998 crash of Swissair Flight 111. The book focuses on the life and career of Dr. John Butt, the Nova Scotia medical examiner overseeing the recovery and identification of the 229 individuals who perished in the tragedy. Following two timelines—from John’s teen years within his tense family home, and the investigation after the crash—the story unfolds with unflinching detail.

I expected this book to be a difficult read, but was surprised by its honesty, humility, and the compassion I felt for John’s personal struggles.

A Head Full of Ghosts

A Head Full of Ghosts is a Bram Stoker Award winning novel about an eight-year-old girl named Merry (Meredith), who is struggling to make sense of unsettling changes affecting her older sister Marjorie. The story is divided into three parts, and each section includes one chapter set 15 years in the future where adult Merry is being interviewed about what happened to Marjorie, one chapter from internet blogger and horror fan Karen Brisette who dissects the reality televisions series made about the supposed possession, and the events as they unfold told from the perspective of eight-year-old Merry.

Merry knows something is off with her sister but has hope that things will return to the way they were. Their mother believes Marjorie is mentally ill and struggles to support her daughter’s increasing health expenses as the sole earner in the four-person household. However, their father comes to believe that Marjorie is possessed by a demon or evil entity, and enlists the assistance of their local priest, Father Wanderly, to assess the situation, and get approval to perform an exorcism.

Chaos ensues when a reality television film crew begins documenting Marjorie’s decline.
