There is a whole series of these types of books. They are lots of fun because the book provides a critical examination and technique identifying strategies for solving real life crimes. The investigation helps build background knowledge and content area knowledge. Also provides students with field guide tools such as reading cues, prompts, call-outs, highlighted words and diagrams. I suggest students read in class or in their spare time and be very engaged.
