Today, the basic scientific precepts of criminal investigation are widely known among professionals and lay-people alike. But behind each of these now commonplace concepts is a hand-in-hand evolution of science and law, spearheaded by innovative thinkers, many of whom risked their careers and reputations for the sake of more perfect justice. In Beating the Devil's Game, Katherine Ramsland traces that development from thirteenth-century Chinese studies of decomposition rates through the marvels of the present day and beyond.

Interesting stories but repetitive and poorly put together. The stories jump around a lot so being not in chronological order creates some confusion. Leaves out a lot of information to tie together history and modern day crime science with cases, there are many examples that could have been used. Fascinating subject though.
