Good non-fiction book that reads like a fiction mystery/thriller. Fans of the TV shows CSI and Bones will enjoy this book where each chapter is like a lesson in a different forensic technique or tool (such as DNA, using sonar to search for a body underwater, etc) Yet it's not like a tech manual for scientists, very easy reading.

Overall very interesting, I enjoyed reading it. My only complaint was that Mr. Bass quotes someone who was incorrect and didn't go back and check the facts. He quoted someone saying that Texas still used hanging as the death penalty (that stopped in 1924). If he made one glaring error, then what else might also be wrong. I like to read well researched, factual material. Now, I will always doubt his veracity, although I will probably read other books that Mr. Bass has written.
