What the corpse revealed : murder and the science of forensic detection

Miller, Hugh, 1937-

New York : St. Martin's Press, 1999.

xii, 242 p. : ill. ; 22 cm.

In vivid detail, What the Corpse Revealed examines the techniques used to solve 16 cases drawn from the files of international forensic scientists.
-- An American business tycoon and his wife were found shot dead at their home, in a room with no windows, which was locked from the inside. No trace of the bullets could be found. The murderer was playing games with the police, but could a smart young forensic scientist outwit the killer?
-- A little boy disappeared from a play area while his father read a newspaper nearby. Police were baffled by the disappearance, until the forensic team swept the boy's home and found evidence that uncovered a hideous and almost unbelievable crime.
-- A reclusive retired TV star received a series of poison pen letters in his luxury Bel Air mansion. Mysterious attempts on his life followed. Forensic scientists matched the fingerprints on the letters to those of his brother, yet the brother had died in a house fire more than a decade ago.
