Summary
This is a fascinating story of a scientific breakthrough that solved one of the most brutal murders in England's history and forever changed the criminal justice system. "Fingerprints" traces fingerprinting to its present-day applications and illustrates why the unique tracks we leave with our fingers continue to be one of the most important means of identifying criminals
