Television writer and consultant Platt writes for the lay reader, explaining the scientific methods and procedures involved in investigating crimes. He describes such techniques as psychological profiling, DNA analysis, fingerprinting, and the review of autopsy reports. Difficult concepts are clarified with examples drawn from newsworthy cases, as well as plenty of color photographs and diagrams. The science is rather thin, but many of the illustrations are excellent. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
