Overview

The experiences of a real-life CSI with a ton of personality and media presence Forensic scientists are crime-solving sleuths producing slam-dunk evidence and tidy endings all in a day's work ... because being a forensic scientist is just like it is on the television, isn't it? In fact, it's so much more than this. From examining illegal drugs to collecting pollen samples from corpses, an independent forensic scientist reveals her fascinating world in this book. Using first-hand experience, Dr Anna Sandiford presents a real-life look at the inner workings of forensic science as she recounts her work, as well as that of others, on well-known (and some lesser known) cases that have created so much media and public fascination.
