Reviews

This no-nosense guide is an admirable alternative to the CSI science fiction juggernaught. Jim Fraser discusses expert evidence, DNA, fingerprints and confirmation bias, mentioning the Birmingham 6 and Sir Roy Meadow, though not Shirley McKie's shameful persecution on the basis of supposedly infallible fingerprint evidence. Fascinating. * William Darragh, Fortean Times juggernaut...Fascinating. *
