The revolutionary techniques of 'genetic fingerprinting' has meant convictions, long after they committed their crimes, for the evil men who mistakenly thought they had escaped detection. Cases that have ended with guilty men standing in the dock are chronicled in this fascinating examination of the past two decades of forensic crime-fighting and how it has finally put the villains where they belong - behind bars. From the sensational, groundbreaking case of bakery worker Colin Pitchfork who murdered two teenage girls near his Leicestershire home, to the historic conviction of teenage shop assistant Craig Harman - tracked down by his brother's DNA for slaying an innocent lorry driver by hurling a brick at him from a motorway bridge - this engrossing book details the crime, the criminals and the men and women who brought them to justice.Acclaimed author John McShane also analyses the hunt for and capture of the M25 rapist who carried out a series of terrifying attacks on young women. He traces the DNA trail that led from London to Korea and back to convict a bloodthirsty landlord who killed his female tenants and callously dumped their bodies in a cupboard and in a suitcase. A catalogue of other gruesome cases where the DNA analysis caught the criminals involved are re-explained in a clear, jargon-free manner. This book also highlights and explains the astonishing future that lies ahead for DNA research. Every crime was unique. Each one looked unsolvable. Many remained so for years. These gripping accounts covering the past 20 years, at last reveal the true stories behind the headlines and send out a chilling message to the criminal underworld. Now there really is nowhere to hide.
