Criminal investigators have learned how to interpret vital testimony that is written in the language of fingerprints and flakes of skin, gradients of teeth and bone, splashes of blood, flecks of paint and traces of chemicals, a splinter of glass, or a uniquely striated bullet.

Bodies of Evidence is packed with intriguing case histories involving an astonishing variety of forensic evidence, and includes various case histories from around the world, including O.J. Simpson, Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, ‘The Mad Bomber’ George Metesky, Tommie Lee Andrews, ‘The Night Stalker’ Richard Ramirez, Jack Unterweger, Lee Harvey Oswald, ‘The Boston Strangler’ Albert DeSalvo, Jeffrey MacDonald, the Lockerbie bombing, ‘The Unabomber’ Theodore Kaczynski, and many more.

Bodies of Evidence also chronicles and evaluates the role of those who had made the most significant contributions in the varied fields of toxicology, serology, fingerprinting, facial reconstruction, forensic ballistics, psychological profiling, and DNA fingerprinting.

The text is illustrated throughout with 200 colour and black and white photographs, some of which have rarely been seen before.
