Book of Murder and Scienceby Roger Wilkes (Editor)
From the first fingerprint evidence in a murder trial in 1905 to recent advances in 'genetic fingerprinting', the techniques of forensic science have helped police to solve some of the most shocking crimes in history. Journalist and author Roger Wilkes has brought together a fascinating collection of forensic detective work, with cases from as early as 1752, to our own times. These trials, mostly successful but sometimes dangerously flawed, give a remarkable insight into the development and huge potential of science-based detection.
