[how Investigators Use Science to Track Down the Bad Guys]Book - 2006
Crime Scene takes young readers behind the yellow tape, into the crime lab, and into the heads of investigators. As they study the whys and hows of connecting clues, suspects, and victims, budding sleuths learn how unique clues like tool marks and fibers can lead to irrefutable conclusions; how to detect fake money and forged documents; how faces are reconstructed from bare skulls; and how crime scenes can be surrounded by silent witnesses that speak volumes. Martha Newbigging's witty illustrations enhance the book's lively design, while readers' curiosity is quenched with striking photos from the lab. A glossary of forensic specializations details the many different professionals that each case requires.
