Summary

How is murder investigated, and what role does forensic science play in solving cases? 

In this enthralling book Jim Fraser gives a unique insight into forensic science and examines in detail some of the UK's most high-profile murder investigations in recent decades, including the deaths of Rachel Nickell, Damilola Taylor and Gareth Williams, the GCHQ code breaker. Drawing on his personal experience as a forensic scientist and cold-case reviewer, Fraser reveals how each of these cases unfolded as a human, investigative and scientific puzzle and how some were solved and why others remain unsolved or controversial even today.

Give it a miss

The way this is written feels condescending, and the authors ego and sense of bitterness toward every other profession overwhelms. Avoid. Read something by Sue Black instead!
