I am currently reading two books which is very unusual for me. My fiction book is Rubbernecker by Belinda Bauer click the cover to see my Teaser from yesterday,
and Silent Witnesses by Nigel McCrery is my non-fiction read. This is a fascinating look, using actual cases at the progress of forensic science over the last couple of centuries.
Silent Witnesses looks at the history of forensic science over the last two centuries, during which time a combination of remarkable intuition, painstaking observation and leaps in scientific knowledge have developed this fascinating branch of detection. Throwing open the casebook, it introduces us to such luminaries as ‘The Wizard of Berkeley’ Edward Heinrich, who is credited with having solved over 2000 crimes, and Alphonse Bertillon, the French scientist whose guiding principle ‘no two individuals share the same characteristics’ became the core of identification. Along the way, it takes us to India and Australia, Columbia and China, Russia, France, Germany, Spain and Italy. And it proves that, in order to solve ever more complicated cases, science must always stay one step ahead of the killer. Amazon
I have just finished Don’t Cry Over Killed Milk by Stephen Kaminski, a great cosy mystery which caught my eye because of the great play on words in the title. Click on the cover to read my review.
I plan to read The Moment Keeper by Buffy Andrews next which is due to be published on 1 November 2013 by Carina
Our lives are often connected in ways we never would have imagined…
Two babies; two very different upbringings.
First there is Sarah: raised by her loving grandmother, but neglected by her own father who views her as the instrument of her mother’s death. She will lead a hard life, searching to belong and to be loved.
Then there is Olivia, surrounded by love, nurtured and adored by her parents, a golden child with a golden future.
When Sarah’s life is cut tragically short and she is assigned to record the moments of Olivia’s life as her Moment Keeper, their lives become intertwined.
Sarah is able to overcome the heartbreak of her own lost years and Olivia is able to deal with a future that isn’t nearly as golden as what she had planned – or is it? Amazon
