American Sherlock: Murder, Forensics, and the Birth of American CSI
Details: The year is 1933, and the location is Berkeley, California. In a lab full of oddities - beakers, microscopes, Bunsen burners, and hundreds of books - sat an investigator who would go on to solve at least 2,000 cases over the course of his 40-year career. Edward Oscar Heinrich dubbed the "American Sherlock Holmes," was one of America's greatest - and first - forensic scientists.
