Book Review: Shocking Cases from Dr. Henry Lee's Forensic Files

Drs. Henry Lee and Jerry Labriola present four major criminal cases from across America before going on to Lee’s work in Bosnia and Croatia, each is chilling because they are true. The vicious murder of unarmed restaurant employees dubbed the Brown’s Chicken Massacre went unsolved for more then ten years before a break in the case led the task force to the killers. Justice was delayed twenty-six years before a change in church hierarchy and the local police department plus the dogged work of cold case detectives resulted in the arrest of the priest who ritually murdered nun.

Each case is introduced with enough background information to get a feel of the people involved, bringing the crime into sharp focus while provoking the question, how did the perpetrators think they could get away with it. True crime and forensic science fans will thoroughly enjoy this.
