Allan Zullo’s 10 True Tales: Crime Scene Investigations is essentially a brief overview of different murders and gives a breakdown of the language utilized during actual investigations. Each chapter is a new case told with the lead investigator as the main character. I didn’t particularly like reading this since this book is meant for a younger audience, maybe kids between ages 7-12 (it’s a medium level chapter book, but the content is a little more mature). It’s definitely a book for a crime scene enthusiast and it’s simply written to suit younger readers. The details are not horrifically intense, but rather mention just enough to give the overall vibe of the crime committed. For me, it was a little too explanatory about the terminology and not enough about the criminals, the investigators, and the deceased- but for a young novice entering the world of mystery and thrillers, I think it would be a good read.
