My Thoughts

Fantastic book about the history of forensic science, and how it evolved and became of use in solving crimes. From the earliest uses of forensics to modern day techniques, this is a read that will be useful to a variety of readers. Those studying criminology or a career in law enforcement will appreciate the background and practical uses of forensics discussed. True crime fans will also find many things of interest and will help in understanding what's involved behind the scenes and what you don't see on TV. Highly recommend it!
