A thief touches a doorknob, leaving behind fingerprints as clues to the crime. A woman is mysteriously killed, and only an autopsy can explain how and why. Many crimes have been solved--and many who are accused have been found innocent--thanks to DNA. In Forensics, part of Full Tilt's Origins: Whodunnit series, readers will learn about the science involved in crime-fighting and how it has impacted the way crimes are solved and committed. A detailed timeline, keywords, and fun facts will allow readers to discover the unique insights that forensic study can offer.

The CSI effect.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "With books touching on theft, the Mob, crime-scene investigation, and the U.S. Secret Service, the high-interest Origins: Whodunnit series comes with built-in hooks for middle-schoolers. Laid out to look like old-fashioned case files, each book features four concise chapters that offer a balanced presentation of information, numerous real-life examples, Did You Know? fact boxes, relevant illustrations, and approachable writing. Each chapter also features a time line arranged as index cards pinned to a corkboard. Readers of Forensics will be briefed on the histories of three areas of science used in criminal investigations autopsy, fingerprinting, and DNA and the impact of the CSI Effect on jurors. These attractive, informative books are solid starting points for research and recreational reading.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2017 Booklist"
