Summary

The Forensic Casebook draws on interviews with police personnel and forensic scientists--including animal examiners, botanists, zoologists, firearms specialists, and autoposists--to uncover the vast and detailed underworkings of criminal investigation. Encyclopedic in scope, this authoritative book leaves no aspect of forensic science untouched, covering such fascinating topics as:

  • Securing a crime scene
  • Identifying blood splatter patterns
  • Collecting fingerprints--and feet, lip, and ear prints
  • Interpreting the stages of a body's decay
  • Examining hair and fiber evidence
  • Trace evidence from firearms and explosives
  • "Lifting" DNA prints
  • Computer crime and forensic photography
  • Career paths in criminal science

Lucidly written and complete with real crime stories, The Forensic Casebook is a reference book for students of forensics.
