The field of forensic geology -- the application of earth materials and geology techniques to criminal and civil investigations -- has been a stalwart since scientific methods were first used for law enforcement. From cases of safecracking and purloined palm trees to tales of kidnapping and murder, including high-profile ones like the Aldo Moro and Adolph Coors cases, author Ray Murray leads readers through some of the most fascinating investigations involving soil and rock evidence.
