Explore the crime lab with Forensics and discover how detectives use science to solve crimes. From the scene of the crime to a criminal's conviction, discover how the marks of blood, footprints, and fingerprints can lead the police to criminals. Find out how specialists can match trace evidence, such as a single hair found on a victim, to the murderer. Learn how famous crimes were solved and, like a true detective, find out whether it was arson, poison, or murder.

About the Author:

Richard Platt is the author of more than fifty books for children. He is the author of Eureka! which was chosen as a 2004 Outstanding Science Trade Book by the CBC and NSTA.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-10–This book looks at the trendy topic of collecting and analyzing evidence. Each spread focuses on a subtopic under the categories Signs of the Crime, Who Is It? and Crime Lab. Abundant, close-up color photographs illustrate everything from ballistics to counterfeit money. Up-to-date events are discussed, such as the DNA identification of the December 2004 tsunami victims in the Indian Ocean. Each chapter concludes with a summary, suggestions for further research, career possibilities, and places to visit. While other titles offer more depth, this visually appealing book gives a basic overview of everything that goes into investigating a crime and is good for browsing. Reluctant readers doing research will find the informative snippets manageable.–Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI
