I decided to read something a little different this last time around and decided on this book about the start of forensic investigators. Basically, this is an overview, including the major cases involved that began the link between law enforcement and the different aspects of science.
Overall, the book is written in a very easy-to-read manner. I was worried that I would end up not understanding some of the different branches of science involved and discussed, but everything was very well explained and in layman's terms. The most intriguing aspect of the book was when specific cases of missing persons and suspicions of clandestine graves were discussed. The background of each of the victims was presented, along with the good ol' detective work behind them, how the clandestine graves were discovered using different aspects of science, and how these different aspects of science were used in a court of law to bring the suspects down and justice to the families. It was a very interesting and informative read. For all of you out there interested in the TV show, CSI (or those similar in nature), this is definitely the read for you!!
