This is an illuminating view of forensic science in fact and fiction.

This book: underlines the relationship between detective fiction and the development of modern forensics; begins with examples of chemistry at work in the novels of crime fiction writers such as Arthur Conan Doyle and Dorothy L.

Sayers; recounts how the sleuthing techniques in detective fiction laid the foundation for the sophisticated analytical methods of modern forensic science; and relates case histories in which modern forensics played a keynote role.
