Book "The Blue Book of Crime" Science of Crime Detection by the Institute of Applied Science, copyright 1948.
Crime detection and Investigation have always been shrouded in deep veils of mystery. To the outsider, the working of the master sleuth and the results he obtains seem little less than miraculous. The exciting and often sensational manner in which the escaped criminal is finally brought to justice on as slim a clue as a single finger print thrills us, and makes us believe that the operative who succeeds is somewhat of a super man, a man endowed with all osrts of incredible and natural powers.
The purpose of this book is to explode this old wornout theory and to explain and demonstrate to you that once behind the scenes, criminal identification and modern scientific investigation methods are not based on supernatural or occult powers but on simple, commonsense facts which can be mastered by most any normal person of average intelligence.
