Forensics: If It Doesn't Walk, We Bring Out the Chalk

This is for REAL forensics books..real science. Not Bones (not even the books. Still fiction!). Not CSI. Not Dexter (come ON people. He's a sociopath!!!) Anyway. If you're like me, and love the TRUE science, this list is for you. And guys, add all the books you want, but let's keep it to nonfiction, please!

message 1: by Dixie Diamond (new)

Dixie Diamond Holy cow--I just found this list and I want to add pretty much all of them to my to-read list!


message 2: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Glad you liked it. If I can point you in a direction..read the Michael Baden and Henry Lee last..the others that aren't in the limelight quite so much are a better read I think.


message 3: by Cindy (new)

Cindy I just finished The Killer of Little Shepherds and it's my first 5 star read of this year.

That is on my "to read" shelf. I'll have to grab it soon then...


message 5: by Adele (new)

Adele Oh, my goodness, new favourite list.


message 6: by Steph (new)

Steph I, like many others have already stated, want to read this whole list!!


Eyehavenofilter I think I may not have enough time to read all of these before I die!
I will just have to give up sleeping, eating, working, and watching
BBC television specials on Crime Scene Investigation?
Ok.... I think I can do this.
