From School Library Journal:

Gr 7-10-Each volume starts with a brief introduction to the subject and places it in historical context. The authors then look at known and notorious figures in the particular area being considered, such as the BTK killer (Serial Killers), the Columbine shooters (Mass Murderers), and the various leaders of al-Qaeda (Infamous Terrorists), while considering the work of law enforcement and government agencies. Notable in these discussions are the history of terrorist organizations and the relationships between governments, not only when fighting terrorists but also when fighting piracy and cartels. All of the books include a boxed case file of the profiled individual and a sidebar with pertinent facts about the main subject. The books have an open format enhanced by many photos and will be accessible to reluctant readers and of interest to students looking for fairly detailed information about crime and criminals. Readers looking for more general information about forensic science would be better served by Melissa Langley Biegert's "Crime Solvers" series (Capstone).-Betsy Fraser, Calgary Public Library, Canadaα(c) Copyright 2013.
