About this book

Introduction

Crime is on the increase and we live in violent times, but what is being done about it? Using real life incidents and reference to current practice, this book answers that question by providing a view of what actually goes on in a forensic science laboratory. The author describes how modern scientific techniques are used to find out the facts about a crime. Monitoring of alcohol in breath and blood, DNA fingerprinting, white collar crime and many other aspects of criminal detection are explained clearly and concisely. The book will be of interest to science students approaching higher education. It is also of general appeal to a much wider readership.
