Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7-10-Murder, crime-scene analysis, and DNA really came into the spotlight in America with the O.J. Simpson murder trial, and readers have been fascinated with forensic science ever since. This valuable primer touches on such topics as blood spatter, trace evidence, amazing files kept at the FBI, and various criminal cases that have used the different types of evidence. The charts and graphs are eye-catching and informative, and the full-color photographs add to readers' understanding or illustrate one of the cases discussed. The notes and further-reading sections will lead readers to more information. This is an easy-to-understand introduction for readers unfamiliar with the topic and a solid choice for basic research.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
