9781501055638: Ask a Forensic Artist: The Art and Science of Law Enforcement's Most Unique Profession
Vom Verlag:

Entertaining and educational, a veteran forensic artist sheds light on the true nature of the profession, and tells how you hold the key to solving law enforcement's coldest cases.

In this book, you'll:

  • Watch as a victim's face is sculpted from just the bare bones of an unidentified skull
  • Uncover the real reason for the thousands of nameless bodies lying in unmarked graves
  • Discover how forensic artists tap a traumatized victim's memory to create the face of their attacker
  • Learn the challenges of depicting what a fugitive might look like after 30 years on the run
  • Read about real-life cases and the role forensic art played in solving them
  • Find out how someone, maybe even you, can become a forensic artist too

From the inside of an evidence locker lined with human skulls, to the backroom of a convenience store where a traumatized witness describes the face of their attacker, Ask a Forensic Artist separates the myths from the hype, giving you an insider's look into the odd and compelling work of the artists working behind the scenes in law enforcement.

With over 70 photo and illustrations, this book is a must-read for forensic fans, students, true crime enthusiasts, and the curious of mind.
