The bestselling forensic psychologist examines the true crimes that inspired the television smash hit, C.S.I.

Katherine Ramsland follows the evidence and revisits some of the most absorbing episodes of the phenomenally popular C.S.I. television franchise, and explores the real-life crimes that inspired them. She also looks into the authenticity of the forensic investigations recreated for the dramatizations, and the painstaking real-life forensic process employed in every one of the actual cases?from notorious mass-murderer Richard Speck, to the massacre of Buddhist monks in an Arizona Temple, to a baffling case of apparent spontaneous combustion.
Katherine Ramsland began her career as a writer with Prism of the Night: A Biography of Anne Rice, and has since published 59 books, including the bestselling The Vampire Companion: The Official Guide to Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles. She holds graduate degrees in forensic psychology, clinical psychology, criminal justice, and philosophy. She teaches forensic psychology and criminal justice at DeSales University.
