Blood Secrets

by Rod Englert

America’s fascination with CSI and detective work is well-documented and present in all forms of media, yet the public seldom gains access to the methodology used. In Blood Secrets: Chronicles of a Crime Scene Reconstructionist, blood-spatter guru Rod Englert will introduce the reader to what the experts zero in on - and sometimes miss - at a crime scene.

Part autobiography, part casebook, Blood Secrets will offer up what Rod has learned about blood along the way, his field tests and experiments, and the crucial keys to deciphering the secret language of bloodshed. Award-winning writer and reporter Kathy Passero helps to capture Englert’s voice in Blood Secrets, a thrilling ride through the most fascinating cases in a lifetime of reconstruction work.
