Editorial Reviews

Review

"Veryuseful for both the lay interested party and for professionals in lawenforcement and justice seeking a basic introduction to forensicsciences."
-- Steve Jackson, author of "No Stone Unturned: The True Story of the World's Premier Forensic Investigators."
  
"A first-class introduction and secular guide to the complexities and history offorensic science."
-- Booklist
   
In "Forensic Analysis and DNA in Criminal Investigations: Including Cold Cases Solved" best-selling true crime author RJ Parker takes the reader on an exciting tour behind the scenes and into the laboratory of forensic science. The book offers a fascinating history of forensic science and its key contributors. As always, Parker keeps the reader on the edge of his/her seat as he explains how forensic science and DNA analysis helped to solve complex and confounding cold cases. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the evolving science of criminal investigations. A fascinating book!
--Dr. Scott Bonn, author of "Why We Love Serial Killers: The Curious Appeal of the World's Most Savage Murderers."
  
"RJ Parker has written another winner!  This book is the best of two worlds: it provides an introduction to DNA and its use in forensic science (for those new to the subject), but also includes specific case studies with analysis of its application.  If you a true crime aficionado, you owe it to yourself to give this a read!"
-- JT Hunter, author of "The Country Boy Killer" and "The Vampire Next Door"

From the Author

EDITORIAL REVIEWS
  From Michael Newton, New York Times Bestseller Author of over 260 books
   
"RJ Parker covers all the bases in this history/casebook of forensic science past and present. He begins, quite rightly, with a history of the field and DNA's application to crime, then proceeds to biographies of 15 pioneers in the field who may or may not be familiar to North American readers of true crime. Parker presents forensic investigations to both cold and "hot" cases, again ranging from the headliners of yesteryear to the 21st century - who would think of 1930s kidnapper George "Machine Gun" Kelly in a forensic context, 50 years before the use of DNA in a criminal case? Yet here he is, where he belongs. The author does not shy away from controversial cases, such as those of the Boston Strangler and O. J. Simpson, where arguments persist years or decades after a verdict in court. Renowned true crime author and historian Peter Vronsky contributes an engaging and informative preface, well worth reading on its own account."
