The DNA in the blood can narrow down a list of suspects—clearing the innocent or helping send the guilty to prison. Discover how blood spatter analysis and DNA fingerprinting began, how they are used now, and how they have solved decades-old mysteries.

"Latta writes clearly and engagingly about a complex topic, using imagined conversations and eye-witness perspectives to bring the stories to life . . . Latta’s book would be a good addition to a middle school or high school library or class about forensics, anthropology or biology." –Children's Literature
