Basher lifts the lid on solving crimes in this fact-filled science book. Chemistry (Hello, Chemical Analysis!), biology (That’s you, DNA and Autopsy!), and physics (I’m looking at you, Blood Spatter and Ballistics!) are all on hand to help detectives find the guilty party. From the first chapter that explains crime (and punishment), through collecting evidence and analysing it, to the last chapter on jobs in forensic science, kids will love reading all about how crimes are solved.
