American Crime Stories Set 2 - School Library Journal

These titles are not for the faint of heart. A warning in each book alerts readers to triggers of violence, crime, and death “that may be disturbing.” Each case is accompanied by infographics, detailed maps, photos, and a timeline of key events. The crime and its investigation are described along with information on the key participants. Sidebars explain rigor mortis, how CSI processes a scene, and other related topics. An “Essential Facts” section recaps key points at the end of each narrative. Back matter includes a glossary, source notes, a selected bibliography, a further reading list, suggested organizations to contact for more information, and a QR code to access online resources. VERDICT A good purchase to support criminal justice electives.
