      The book lays out the techniques, secrets and curiosities of forensic science, explaining them in a reader-friendly manner; it investigates famous cases so that we can better understand what we read in newspapers and see in films and TV series.

      Have you ever wondered how a murder case can be solved thanks to a single drop of blood? And how, on the other hand, a whole investigation can get screwed up in spite of seemingly seamless evidence such as DNA testing? The book shows how a fleck of skin, a hair or a leaf can lead to a name and surname. The most fascinating aspects include the main techniques used in forensic science, i.e. all the notions that come into play when evidence is found at a crime scene and needs to be analysed to solve the case.

      The book takes a rigorously scientific dive into numerous cases that have laid the foundations of current forensic techniques; even if you have no scientific experience, you will be able to follow along as the book explains the procedures and analyses, linking them to famous news cases and little-known historical curiosities.
