Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
Modern forensics includes a dizzying array of techniques and sciences, all specialized in the forensics lab to provide clues and evidence used to solve crimes. The different types of science or technology, e.g., fingerprinting, autopsy, the study of soils and seeds, DNA evidence, are discussed in 2-page spreads supported by color photographs and bright, contrasting graphics which give the pages a contemporary, energetic appearance. Sidebars, labeled "Busted," "Fact File" and "On Target," give further information about the forensic science under discussion or a related case history. This book, one in the "Inside Crime" series, concludes with a glossary, a list of resources labeled "Further Information," an index and an abbreviated description of other books in the series. Hynson's book would be a good addition to a middle school or high school library or science class focusing on modern forensics. Reviewer: Hazel Buys
