A fingerprint identifies a serial poisoner, a strange indentation in a caravan panel proves a hit-run driver's guilt, and a mass DNA screening flushes out a brutal criminal.


Author Vikki Petraitis is a successful true crime writer who has a number of books to her name to date. This one takes an in-depth look at the police science behind modern forensics and techniques used to identify and catch criminals.

It is a well written and researched book that is both informative and amazing. The advancement of forensic police work, especially over the last ten years is astounding and Petraitis covers cases that have been solved through this science.

Very well written and interesting book.
