Dusted and Busted: The Science of Fingerprinting by D. B. Beres

You probably already know that your fingerprints are unique. That's what makes them such a great method of identification. Say there's been a robbery. Police arrive on the scene. One of the first things they'll do is search for fingerprints. If the thief has left a fingerprint, that could lead to a quick arrest.

Want to know more? Get your prints all over this book and read about: how a household product can make invisible prints visible; how an expert used a single bloody fingerprint to track down a killer; everything you always wanted to know about your own fingerprints-and toe prints; and whether forensic fingerprint examination is the right career for you!
