Delving into the fascinating world of the criminal investigator, this series unveils the tools and techniques used by today's (and yesterday's) professionals. Students will learn how today's cutting edge forensic science unravels the clues in the tiniest bits of evidence -- a drop of blood, a strand of hair, a speck of dirt, a shard of bone. Each title focuses on a particular type of crime, and includes features like crime stats, facts versus fiction sections, full-color photos and more.
"A fascinating discussion on other imprint evidence - tire tracks, shoes, bite marks and even dust - is followed by a chapter on future technologies in this field. The attractive graphics, color photos and sidebars will add to young readers' enjoyment of this text, recommended for school and public libraries for pleasure reading or research in grades six through nine."
