Grade 7 Up—These titles stem from famous cases culled from the headlines. Each topic has been thoroughly researched and both books combine scientific procedure with case history. Many crimes are addressed, as is the media coverage they received. Background information and a list of known suspects are included for each example. The subject matter is gruesome, but the writing is not sensationalized. The sidebars supplement the texts, but their placement is at times awkward. Many of the examples in Unsolved Crimes are discussed in other titles in the series. Diane Yancey's Tracking Serial Killers (Gale, 2007) is similar in content and scope to Serial Killers, but is organized less methodically. Addition purchases for most collections.—Lori A.
