  • This book was really interesting butthere were many times that the author spent too much time on a tangent narrative when a paragraph would have sufficed I found myself skimming to get to the point and then skimming to get to the end Extremely well written though


  • It s a critique of Fire Science Forensics much than it is the core title subject in this book s entirety In other words, the first half you ll get far of the title subject Joann Parks arson case than you ll get out of the last sections In fact, the last two sections dealt with cognition of sciences and forensics themselves in fields of DNA, fingerprint evaluations surety etc etc Or bite marks, which have been used as identity markers unreliably And numerous other tangents of pri It s a critique [...]

  • Compelling nonfiction that has at its heart a fire that killed three children The California Innocence Project took up this case and the work they do is extraordinary seeking to free wrongfully convicted people, who have languished in prisons for decades The story is heartbreaking And the skillful way Humes identifies all the problems with forensic evidence, not just in this case, but in all cases, is enlightening and terrifying The belief that fire evidence, fingerprints, hair and blood, an Com [...]
