Blood, Bullets, Bones
This was a good book about the history of forensic science and covered aspects such as autopsies, fingerprints, blood tests, firearm analysis, and more. Interspersed with the science were stories where the science was applied including well known events like Jake the Ripper and other lesser known events. I read the book rather quickly because it was told in an interesting way.
My only negative was that some of the stories were interjected in odd places and it sometimes felt a bit jarring. In one case in particular it felt like the story was left unfinished. I actually went back a few pages one time to see if I missed something.
Overall a good book.
