For general readers interested in forensic science, Kurland, best known for his "Professor Moriarty" mystery novels, offers a history of the field and its methods. Along with key cases, he details such techniques as Alphonse Bertillon's program of physical measurements used to recognize habitual criminals; the study of fingerprints; Phillip Gravelle's comparison microscope for examining bullets; the development of bloodstain identification; and recent advances in DNA typing techniques, blood-spatter analysis, and face-pattern recognition. He also discusses techniques that have become less popular like microscopic hair examination, handwriting analysis, lie detectors, voice spectrum analysis, and bite-mark evidence.
