This was an extremely well written page turner...one of those Truth is Stranger than Fiction reads. It was meticulously researched, faithfully crafted, and wound up being an engaging eye opener into the early days of crime detection and forensic science.

I do wish the conclusion had been more definitive, but you can't fault the author, as it's a non-fictional account.
