Detailed accounts of over 30 contemporary cases, or older cases reopened as a result of advances in forensic science. Crime scene investigations draw on a wide range of cutting-edge technology including genetic fingerprinting, blood splatter analysis, laser ablation, toxicology and ballistics analysis. Cases covered here include: the abduction of Madeleine McCann; the vindication of Colin Stagg, convicted of having murdered Rachel Nickell; Hadden Clark who killed and ate a six-year-old child in Maryland; Robert Pickton, the Vancouver farmer who fed his female victims to his pigs; the murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia (was Amanda Knox guilty?); Lindsay Hawker's gruesome death in Japan; Josef Fritzl and the cellar in which he imprisoned and raped his daughter.

Using the latest modern technology available to forensic science, crime scene investigators answer questions others never even thought to ask. Here are over 30 fascinating modern cases of forensic detective work. Genetic fingerprinting, blood splatter analysis, laser ablation, toxicology, ballistics analysis - the whole range of forensic techniques is featured. The investigators trust only the evidence to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves: the victims. The cases featured include: Tommie Lee Andrews, the first person to be convicted as a result of DNA evidence, for raping a woman during a burglary; Jeffrey Gafoor, convicted of murder in 2003 when crime scene evidence collected twelve years previously resulted in a match with his nephew; Richard W. Rogers, convicted of the murder of two of his numerous gay male victims, through vacuum metal deposition, technology which saves fingerprints from plastic bags; Dr. Sam Sheppard, the murder trial based on blood evidence that inspired the TV series "The Fugitive"; Edwin Bush, the first murderer in Britain to be brought to book thanks to an identikit picture; Derrick Todd Lee, the Baton Rouge Serial Killer, only nailed by DNA evidence, after a flawed FBI profile led big-shot investigators astray. It also includes: The Mormon Forgery Murders, an outstanding case of forensic techniques used to solve a horrifying bombing case; Albert T. Patrick, the Texan attorney tried for the murder of a millionaire businessman and convicted on handwriting evidence. These cases, usually successful - but also sometimes dangerously flawed - offer a remarkable insight into real-life scene-of-crime investigation.

Praise for previous editions: Quantity as well as quality . . . every piece is a treasure. The Times. For more than a quarter century, Gardner Dozois's Mammoth Book of Best New SF has defined the field. It is the most important anthology, not only annually, but overall. Charles N. Brown, publsiher of Locus Magazine. New authors rub shoulders with old hands, and strong work from relative novices Hannu Rajaniemi and Lavie Tidhar suggest that SF's future is as bright as ever.

Winner of Best Guidebook for 2006 from the North American Travel Journalists Association Companion podcast available for download on frommers.com. Spend Less and See More in New York City: Are You Ready to Travel Smart? If you'd like to get the most out of your dollar and your trip, this is the guide for you. I put a fresh spin on budget travel, showing you how to see the best for less and how to see it in a more authentic way-the way the locals do. Instead of spending $300 a night for a chain hotel, why not live it up in an antiques-filled Fifth Avenue mansion for just $75, or bed down in a SoHo gallery just steps from the artwork for $110? Or how about enjoying falafel at Alfanoose for just $5, so you can splurge on up-and-coming chef Abdhul Traore's steak frites dusted with African herbs at Les Enfants Terribles? Let me show you the "other" New York City-the one only insiders know about. Take a one-day cooking class with the city's top chefs or get free tango lessons at the Argentine Consulate. These are only a few of the great ways to get closer to the culture of New York City. Read on for more! Happy Travels, Pauline Frommer www.frommers.com/pauline
