Overview

You must get your hands on this book! Fingerprints—and the history of their use in fighting crime—is a totally engrossing subject. Did you know that some criminals try to burn off their fingerprints to avoid being caught? Others slice them with razors. This is just one sign that fingerprinting has gained a stinging reputation as a source for ID. In fact, fingerprinting has been used to ID criminals for the past 100 years. This is despite the fact that fingerprinting has never been proven by science. Do you know why we have fingerprints in the first place? Read the book to find out!
