Summary
Wagner, a crime historian, uses the fictitious cases of Sherlock Holmes mysteries as a way to explain forensics during the Victorian age. She describes the history of the field at this time, topics such as anatomy, toxicology, blood chemistry, fingerprinting, evidence handling, ballistics, handwriting, and other types of evidence, and cases involving poisoning, dogs and insects, and disguises. Real cases and a few illustrations are incorporated. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
