Here is a new and exciting guide to the fascinating world of crime and detection. From John Dillinger's death mask to a scene-of-crime forensics kit, superb color photographs offer a unique "eyewitness" view of famous crimes and the evidence that has brought criminals to justice. See evidence of one of the first known strangulations, Lord Lucan's traveling chest, a Canadian Mountie's uniform, the bulletproof jackets of Bonnie and Clyde, the difference between Hitler's real diary and the fake one. Learn how to detect the presence of arsenic in blood, about the magnetic fingerprint brush, how a face can be reconstructed from a skull, the difference between a strand of cotton and a strand of polyester. Discover how to track ransom money and find a kidnapper, a violin case used to conceal a gun, the bank clerks who thought they were being given medicine when really they were being robbed, and much, much more!
