Can a skeleton confess? Can a talking parrot actually lead the police to a suspect?Throughout the twentieth century, important crimes have been solved with unusual clues that have required detectives to go off the beaten track and sometimes to consult with experts from scientific fields. Charlotte Foltz Jones has drawn together numerous actual accounts that illustrate the fascinatingly diverse and often surprising paths to truth. Bugs, dirt, bite marks, and even pets are all potential crime-solving clues. This page-turning book is perfect for detectives-to-be, young scientists, and all those interested in a peek at the police work that goes on behind the scenes.
