Review: The Casebook of Forensic Detection: How Science Solved 100 of the World's Most Baffling Crimes

User Review  - Ashley (For the Love of the Page) - Goodreads

This was a great book! It gave me just enough scientific background in each case to be satiated. I would have liked a little more depth with some of the cases, but I understand that it would have caused the book to be extremely lengthy. Other than that, excellent read. Read full review
