About this book

Shows how knowledge of insects and their habits allows forensic entomologists to provide investigators with crucial evidence about crimes.

Irresistible... Goff [is] a marvellously vivid and clear explainer of his science... [His] tales can be riveting. - Atul Gawande, New York Times Book Review; "Goff takes you into the world of the forensic entomologists: the intrepid band of insect experts around the world who turn their intimate knowledge of creepy crawlers to the service of police work... A fascinating read... Goff seems like just the sort of gifted storyteller you'd want to have a drink with - but, perhaps, not dinner." - John Schwartz, Washington Post Book World
