Forensics

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
True Crime

A fingerprint identifies a serial poisoner, a strange indentation in a caravan proves a hit-run driver's guilt, and a mass DNA screening flushes out a brutal criminal. Vikki Petraitis has interviewed Australian police from Forensics, Criminal Investigation Units and Homicide to write these stranger-than-fiction true-crime stories. In all cases forensics played a key role in bringing the perpetrators to justice. But unlike many fictional TV forensic shows, the resolution of these real-life detective stories relies as much on the determination of the police involved as modern technology.

The Mystery of the Missing Masterpiece

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

Cornelia Finnigan, the loudest, loveliest and luckiest PI, is back - smarter, brighter and funnier than ever.

Having recovered from her near fatal run-in with a novice nun, Cornelia is the lucky recipient of a stunning porcelain horse.  Funny that it looks just like the one the Triads appear to be murderously searching for....

Hilarious antics ensue as a plastic surgeon's after-hours consultations are uncovered, followed by a late-night pursuit of a shifty courier that leaves our heroine dangerously dangling.  It all adds up to a rollicking good read.

Just where is justice in Australia hiding? This brilliant new collection of true crime stories takes us into the Australian courts of the 1980s and '90s, back in time to the goldfields of the 1860s, and out to the island nation of Nauru in 2006 to explore how the scales of justice are unbalanced. This is a world in which the innocent still get locked up and the guilty too often go free.
