Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
Much of modern crime involves the use of computers that are used to generate electronic data and digital information. Specialists in digital forensics investigate computer evidence and the crimes they investigate are called cyber crimes. Any electronic equipment is subject to cyber crime. Case studies of cyber vandalism, computer viruses, hacking, cyber theft and identity theft are based on actual events and add realism and interest. The investigative techniques that solved each type of crime illustrate the many tools and approaches available to cyber criminologists. Sidebars labeled "Did You Know?" add specific information that expands the text. Color photographs and well-designed graphics support each two-page spread. Words printed in bold are defined in the glossary. This book is one in the "Amazing Crime Scene Science" series and concludes with a glossary, an index and a list of websites titled "Web Finder." Townsend's book targets a fourth through eighth-grade school population, advising a word of caution: some case studies are about missing/murdered children. Townsend's book would be a good addition to an upper elementary or a middle school library or class on forensics, computer ethics or criminology. Reviewer: Hazel Buys
