When a crime is committed with a firearm or an explosive, the first people the police turn to are often ballistic analysts. By examining angles, bullets, and explosive residue, these scientists analyze the behavior of projectiles, such as bullets. Readers learn both how ballistics research is performed and how law enforcement officials use these findings to solve crimes. The detailed main text is supplemented with engaging fact boxes, unique sidebars, and photographs that give readers an up-close look into the scientific world of ballistic studies.
