They’re the hottest characters on TV: crime scene investigators who hunt for evidence to nail the culprit. But what does it take to solve a real crime? By going step by step through the detection process, kids will discover that you need more than mere deduction to catch a thief, forger, or murderer: you need smart science. Budding detectives will meet the people who help bring a perpetrator to justice and learn what makes up hard evidence. They’ll check their ability to separate fact from opinion, test their powers of observation and memory, try to recognize sounds and smells, and gather the tools of the trade. Fingerprinting, chromatography, even tracing a bullet’s trajectory are all covered, along with intriguing true crime stories.
