Review: Forensics by Val McDermid

This book was what is says and more.  It delves into various forensic disciplines in depth and explores the history and development of each.  It stresses what is true and not true about each area and relates historic and recent cases where it has been applied.  Entomology, Blood Spatter analysis, DNA, Forensic psychology and Fingerprinting are just some of the categories.  The research is excellent and her narrative is very engaging and easy to understand.

With all the tv shows, movies and documentary series regarding crime, I think this is a fantastic read to see what they are all talking about.
