Edward Oscar Heinrich, known as the “American Sherlock,” of his time was a renowned forensic scientist from the early twentieth century and one of our country’s first expert witnesses used in a criminal trial, solving over two-thousand cases! However, little was known about how much he contributed to modern forensic technology and procedures, I know I never heard of him before this book!
This is an engrossing true crime read with each chapter focusing on a specific case and what groundbreaking techniques Heinrich used to solve them. A really great read for anyone interested in the forensic sciences and that loved shows like CSI! ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz
