Horn Book Review

This comprehensive examination of the ways scientists use evidence at crime scenes covers the beginning of forensic science to future technologies, such as facial recognition software. Profiles of famous cases (Timothy McVeigh, O.J. Simpson) and descriptions of jobs in the field (forensic entomologists, dentists, anthropologists) will pique readers' interest. The overly busy design is confusing, but many clear, well-captioned photos are included. Reading list, websites. Bib., glos., ind. (c) Copyright 2010.
