Description

The father of forensic microscopy was Frenchman Edmund Locard. In 1910 he performed the first systematic analytic research on dust traces taken from people’s clothes and bodies, formulating what is known today as the exchange principle: whenever two objects come into contact there is always a transfer of material. As a disciple of Locard, Skip Palenik has spent the last 30 years widening the field of microscopy to include crime-busting. With clients including Scotland Yard, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the FBI, he is used to helping crack cases that turn on insubstantial materials.

"Frying Tonight," "Meals To Die For," "Last Bites," Brian Price has heard them all. For more than 10 years he was the "last meal" chef for inmates at Huntsville Prison, Texas, and now he has written a book revealing the last culinary requests of some of America’s most notorious killers. "I know I have been criticised for writing this book," Price admits, "but is it as morbid and macabre as strapping someone down and killing them like an animal in front of tons of witnesses?"
