Overview

A compelling brew of mystery, crime, and science revealing the details of high-tech murder investigations.

Using actual cases from across the country, the author reveals how Canadian scientists, both inside and outside forensic laboratories, are revolutionizing the age-old task of solving murders through a multi-disciplinary team approach that brings doctors, dentists and even university professors to the front lines of homicide investigations.

Find out how a forensic anthropologist recreated a murder by retrieving thousands of charred bone fragments from a well-used firepit; how a forensic entomologist discredited a killer's alibi by cultivating the maggots from his victims' decomposing bodies; how a forensic dentist identified a child murderer from a single bite mark, and much more.
