Editorial Reviews

Review

★ “Sherlock Holmes lovers, CSI: Miami aficionados, and forensic science students will all be drawn to this rather gruesome yet highly entertaining and fact-packed history.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“Punctuated by fascinating photos, a smattering of educational asides, and astute pop-culture references (Dexter, Les Misérables, The Silence of the Lambs), and followed by a glossary of key terms, this is sure to appeal to wannabe FBI agents, budding history buffs, “armchair detectives,” and everyone in between.” (Booklist)

“Vivid and occasionally gruesome but always engrossing.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Heos’s conversational text is forthright with the (sometimes disturbing) facts, but never sensationalized―keeping the focus squarely on the fascinating science.” (Horn Book Magazine)

“For teens who haven’t ventured much beyond CSI, this will prove a solid and entertaining introduction to a compelling subject.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“A fascinating account of the history of forensic investigation from ancient times to the modern age, this easy-to-read, concise volume is by turns horrifying, amusing, and enlightening. Libraries serving young adults should definitely have this in their collections for fans of mysteries, science, and history.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
