Summary
In this insightful book, forensics expert Jay Siegel uses a concise narrative style to provide readers with an understanding of the major areas of forensic science. Citing real-life cases, Siegel reveals the complexities behind forensics, especially in the areas of drugs, trace evidence, and crime scene investigation. Readers will learn what forensic science is and what forensic scientists' duties are in crime labs. Laboratory systems, crime lab culture (particularly as it pertains to pattern evidence and observer bias), and forensic scientists work environment are interestingly presented. The thrilling narrative also covers forensic toxicology, fingerprinting, handwriting as pattern evidence, forensic biology, and analysis of firearms, fires, explosions, hairs, fibers, paint, glass, and soils
