Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book uncovers the most surprising and novel crime-solving methods used by forensic police investigators in figuring out complex crimes. Each of these now famous techniques – criminal profiling, the use of luminol, forensic anthropology – is explained through impressive real life cases. In addition to the bibliographic references, the author borrows from autopsies, journalistic reports, judicial sentences, mental health studies, and police and FBI regulations. Among the cases discussed in the book, the reader will learn about the Green River serial killer and how he was captured thanks to the study of an insect. You will also see how luminol revealed that a murder had taken place in a hotel room when not a single blood stain was visible to the naked eye. This book will bring the reader closer to the crime-solving techniques made famous on popular TV series. At the same time, the reader will learn which of these methods are used in reality and what their limitations are in a police investigation.
