The FBI recently changed the definition of a Serial Killer to an individual with a "cooling off" period in which the killer plans and fantasized about the next kill while reliving the previous one. This informative book is exactly as the title reads, it is the Forensic Analysis and the DNA in Criminal Investigations. This is the heart and soul of these investigations and it also includes some cold cases that are now solved based on these techniques.
Fantastic book about the history of forensic science, and how it evolved and became of use in solving crimes. From the earliest uses of forensics to modern day techniques, this is a read that will be useful to a variety of readers. Those studying criminology or a career in law enforcement will appreciate the background and practical uses of forensics discussed. True crime fans will also find many things of interest and will help in understanding what's involved behind the scenes and what you don't see on TV. Highly recommend it!
This is a great book. I learned a lot about Forensic and how it works in solving crimes. Included are some cold cases and how they were finally solved with the Forensic that came out years after the cases went cold. If you are interested in what Forensic is and how it works this is the book you need to read! This book explains how Forensic works in a way that you can understand.
