    I find true crime fascinating It’s not nearly so pat and tied up as detective fiction and this makes it seem immediate – and even incorrect This “incorrectness” exhibits itself most in accounts of unsolved crimes Unsolved I and Unsolved II by George Sullivan are accounts of eighteen unsolved mysteries from modern history but it also bobs up in the solved ones True Crimes focuses on how several otherwise baffling cases were solved by breakthroughs in forensic science Those developments include the sciences of Fingerprinting – identifying individuals by the patterns of ridges and whorls on their fingertips Genetic Fingerprinting – examining the DNA found in blood stains etc to prove whether it belonged to the victim Pathology – using postmortem examinations of the corpse to determine cause of death as well as to help identify unknown corpses through the discovery of past injuries and surgeries Ballistics – identifying the grooves left along the sides of bullets as they left the chamber to determine what model gun fired them Toxicology – studying the symptons of and traces left by poisons Chemistry – testing the chemicals present on an individual’s clothes and belongings to corroborate or refute their testimony Entomology – examining the evidence left by bugs on the scene of the crime to determine time of death Psychological Profiling – identifying types of killers to aid in unraveling the protections they erect for themselvesMs Larsen claims that “ before the seventeenth century great numbers of people believed it was wrong to even try solving crimes by using thought and reasoning” pgs 1 2 While it is certain that forensic science was woefully deficient in many areas during the Middle Ages Ms Larsen gives no references to support her claim leaving me rather suspicious of its truthConclusion Great for those looking to spring from detective fiction into the real world of crime solving
