Discover the surprising answers in The Casebook of Forensic Detection as a true-crime treasury of 100 of the most fascinating cases of all time. More than two centuries in the development of modern forensic procedures come to vivid life as everything from handwriting analyses and voiceprints to ballistics, DNA testing, and psychological profiles reveal whodunit (and, in some startling cases, who didn't do it).
As an undergraduate in the field of forensic sciences, and one who has read hundreds of true crime novels, I must say that this book is of the most interesting ones that I have explored so far. It not only teaches us about some of today's forensic sciences, it does this in a chronological manner; in each of the various categories (i.e. ballistics, serology, DNA, toxicology, and many others), cases begin with early findings, which demonstrate how changes in crime detection have changed along the way.
A great book for everyone that has an interest in crime, science and the changing face of bringing criminals to justice.
