It all started with Sherlock Holmes. The incredible ability of the fictional detective to solve crimes from the merest physical clues inspired Scotland Yard to follow his lead and search for the trail of criminals in the physical evidence left behind at every crime scene. 100 years later, forensic science boasts abilities that would once have been considered magical, even by the exceedingly rational Holmes. CRIME SCIENCE traces the development of forensics from its infancy to today. Agents and investigators demonstrate the powerful tools that are at their disposal, from DNA "fingerprinting" to fiber science, and revisit famous cases, from the ballistic evidence that led to the conviction of James Earl Ray to the tiny clues that put investigators of the Lockerbie disaster on the trail of Libyan terrorists. It's the definitive history of how technology has helped transform the art of crime solving.
