Synopsis: With hands-on demonstrations, this book presents the science — and the realities — of forensic chemistry in a narrative style that makes this timely topic accessible to the nonchemist. The authors lead you through actual and simulated forensic techniques, such as presumptive and confirmative drug testing, body fluid identification including luminol testing, DNA analysis, trace fiber and gun shot residue analysis, latent fingerprint development, and forensic soil analysis.

Through more than twenty-five demonstrations, using ordinary household products and items, you can become familiar with the basics of forensic chemistry and gain insights into the painstaking work that goes into criminal investigations and is rarely seen on TV.

If you’re a fan of true-crime stories or mystery fiction, or interested in the science behind dramas like CSI, this informative and entertaining book is a must-have addition to your library.
