No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Drawing on his years as a Calgary crime reporter, Peter Smith tells the stories of baffling and bizarre Alberta crime scenes. These 10 gripping tales of murder and missing persons show how skulls and skeletons revealed their secrets to forensic investigators as they pursued justice for the unfortunate victims. From DNA analysis to forensic facial reconstruction, Smith details the scientific search for the truth hidden in the bones, but also reveals the effectiveness of dogged, old-fashioned detective work, which sometimes relies more on hunches and human psychology than hard science
