    1. This book did fully enravel me in the peculiar and grisly truth about crimes and murders, but also set me in the paths of how the science of forensics can observe and solve the crimes at hand, even case that as far I red date back to the late 1800's, also including the famous unsolved case of Jack the Ripper.The cases I read of were gruesome and heart wrenching, of course I had no emotional attachment, but it was still horrific to imagine facing these crimes in real life. I can understand the st [...]

    2. Reviewed by Me for TeensReadTooFor those interested in how forensic science works, then POLICE LAB is a must-read. Author David Owen presents a great beginning presentation into how forensic science works in regards to ballistics, DNA processing, fingerprint evidence, bite marks, tire imprints, and even handwriting analysis -- and how they can be used to figure out the person who has committed a crime. Using more than twenty true-life cases, from the death of INXS rocker Michal Hutchence to seri [...]

    3. This book was really great. I chose it as my informative book. I have always loved crime television shows, reading about serial killers, etc. So when I saw this book in the YA Lit section at the library I grabbed it. It is really cool because it explains exactly how the police investigate and solve crimes. The book explains specific scientific tools they use to examine evidence and I thought that was really interesting. After every new scientific tool, they went over a crime that used that metho [...]

    4. This was overall a nice and really interesting reading. Though I straggled a little to get through it, I learned a lot of stuff about criminology, criminals, patterns, analyzing methods etc. It was given to me as a birthday gift a couple of years ago when I settled down on wanting to become a coroner. So I guess this book helped a lot.

    5. this book is good for people how what to know about crime's like 911,jeffrey macdonald and the ice pick and o.j. simpson and show fingerprint's

    6. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The method of putting 1 or 2 case files in each chapter was awesome, and the information wasn't over bearing.
