Cold case investigators scrape back paint in a renovated flat where a murder was committed twelve years earlier, and find a blood stain that leads them to a killer. Scientists extract DNA from crime-scene samples collected in 1973, and a 21st-century hunt for a triple murderer begins. A forensic dentist probes the mysterious death of an ancient Egyptian mummy. A long-forgotten palm print leads detectives to the real perpetrator of a murder for which an innocent man has already served 12 years' jail. In this collection of fascinating cold cases from Australia, the UK and the US, award-winning writer Liz Porter shows how modern forensic science can unlock solutions for crimes and mysteries unsolved for decades, and, in some cases, centuries. Praise for Liz Porter: "...each of her stories reads like good crime fiction... a compulsive read" - The Sydney Morning Herald "A delightful and entertaining writer..." - Weekend Australian Winner of Davitt Award for Best True Crime 2011

A fascinating look at how scientists solve today's mysteries and centuries-old "cold cases." Savvy investigative work and scientific knowledge combine to answer perplexing questions and to uncover long-unknown truths. Using a trail of evidence -- clues, careful observation, laboratories and new testing protocols -- scientists reveal intriguing answers to such questions as: What really killed Beethoven? Are the Hitler diaries real or fakes? The stories and sidebars show how scientists collect clues, analyse them, test theories, and arrive at solutions -- or gather enough evidence to support further investigation. The cases involve branches of science as wide-ranging as astronomy and biochemistry to geology and physics. These are gripping high-interest stories for middle-grade non-fiction lovers, with Canadian content throughout. A helpful index and glossary are also provided.

This book provides unique insights into the current heated healthcare reform debate in the United States and the expanding US$2 trillion industry that is the focus of public concern. The author''s extensive experience as an educator, consultant, researcher and author of five well-received books on that system provides a unique resource of largely unreported cases to mine.

Highly readable, the book also offers a candor and richness in detail that is typically lacking in textbooks, academic journal articles and the popular press. Sample Chapter(s).

Learn the fundamentals of anesthesiology in the context of real patients. 4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "The book targets medical students, but even junior anesthesia trainees would find it very compelling....Although it has the appearance of a handbook, this book is an overview of clinical anesthesiology. It takes a simulation approach to drive home essential concepts of anesthesia management in different disease conditions. Of all the handy books out there, this is perhaps the only one that teaches anesthesia in the context of real patients rather than merely stating facts. It would be an invaluable aid to medical students doing anesthesia clerkships or junior anesthesia trainees who need a quick review for an emergency case in the middle of the night."--Doody's Review Service Case Files: Anesthesiology contains 53 high-yield cases with open-ended questions.
