School Library Journal
These titles introduce the science that is used to solve crimes. Through colorful illustrations, vocabulary definitions, and extra information in page insets, readers are taken behind the scenes of actual investigations. They become the detectives as crimes are presented, questions are asked, the gathered evidence is analyzed, and conclusions are drawn. DNA evidence, fingerprints, and forensic artists all come into the picture. Each book also has a help-wanted spread that gives requirements for and explains aspects of a career related to the topic: fingerprint analyst, forensic artist, and DNA scientist. This series is similar in scope to the "Forensics, The Science of Crime Solving" series (Mason Crest) but it is on an easier reading level. Concise and interesting introductions to solving crimes through forensic science.
