This book reminded me so much of the sorts of books I read as a child (although more gory than those, of course) that it was a little disconcerting to have a case from one of those childhood books get mentioned in passing in the midst of discussing one of the cases in this book.

This wasn't a 'bad' read, just a re-hash/update of cases, most everyone's is familiar with many of them. I felt that there may have been a few times when the author put in a little personal bias and drifted from the evidence, but it wasn't necessarily a bad thing.

this book is contain of several stories included celebrities scandals or just common cases that complicated enough so CSI have to do their work to solve it.

this book is extremely detail about the CSI procedure until sometimes, i just skipped it a few paragraphs just because i'm not really understand about their term of words. but this book is quite good enough though.

This book contained the forensic evidence and investigation involved in 31 famous cases. The majority of them were very interesting, but a couple went into way too much detail that I found boring and tended to skip over sentences to get to the end - but other than the odd few it was a good mix of cases to read about.
