From ballistics and blood splatter patterns to DNA analysis and voice printing, RJ Parker explores the highly complex world of investigative forensic sciences. Intended as an introductory guide and reference to forensic techniques for frontline police officers, criminal attorneys, journalists, crime authors, and just interested listeners, this encyclopedic audiobook is a must-listen for any true-crime aficionado.
Parker examines various forensic techniques and principles of investigative sciences and some of the historical figures in the evolution of forensics over the last two centuries and provides real case examples where forensic sciences were key not only in identifying the guilty but also in clearing the innocent and freeing the wrongly convicted.

This narrator has to go down in history as the most boring person I've ever heard - not only in my 6 years of daily listening to Audiobooks but in my entire life. He reads four words or maybe a sentence at a time as if reading the football results. No emphasis, inflection,or character whatsoever. Monotonous is his middle name. Shame as it's an interesting subject.
Interesting topic and information.
Very "choppy" in his sentence delivery. Sounds as though he is reading line by line, instead of sentence by sentence.
Enjoyed the book, however, I think I enjoy books that delve into the scientific aspect more. This was very superficial scientifically.
"Gets Better at the End"
If you want to know about history and the forensic analysis I would say that I would recommend this book to a friend.
It has some interest in some of the cases that they cover early on in the book. The last hour or 90 minutes references popular cases and the importance of forensic analysis in those cases. I found that 90 minute segment worthwhile and prevented me from returning the book.
