Crime Scene: Inside the World of the Real CSIs
Who are the real CSIs?
Most people who work as actual crime scene investigators will tell you two things: Television doesn't always show the truth...and science never lies. But how do DNA experts, trace analysts, medical examiners, forensic pathologists, and cold case detectives work together to produce evidence and solve a case--beyond the shadow of a doubt?
In this fascinating, true-life account, America's leading crime experts share their personal, unforgettable stories. From powder burn to fiber analysis, blood spatter to skeletal remains, New York Times bestselling author Connie Fletcher takes you into a world of crime-solving that's even grittier, more bizarre, and more shocking than any TV show. It's a thrilling ride into the dead center of a crime scene.

"As close as you will ever get to being in the middle of a criminal investigation."--Barry Fisher, Crime Laboratory Director, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department
