Think you have what it takes to be a crime scene investigator or a junior Sherlock Holmes? Here's what you need to know to get started.
Fingerprinting suspects. Dusting for prints they left behind. Combing over the scene of a crime to spot near-invisible clues. Guaranteed to keep sleuths busy and on the case, these lively instructions and hands-on activities cover everything from securing a crime scene and gathering evidence to following footprints, tracking suspects, and interviewing witnesses (and knowing when they are lying ). Among this guide's special features are:
- An ink pad for taking fingerprints
- A make-your-own periscope kit
- A foldout poster featuring a case to be solved
