About the book:

The New York Times Bestseller by the author of The Onion Field. The Dramatic True Story of the First Murder Case Solved by Genetic "Fingerprinting". SYNOPSIS: THE MURDER HUNT THAT REVOLUTIONIZED MODERN CRIME DETECTION. Fifteen-year-old Lynda Mann's savagely raped and strangled body is found along a shady footpath near the English village of Narborough. Though a massive 150-man police dragnet is launched, the case remains unsolved. Three years later the killer strikes again, raping and strangling teenager Dawn Ashforth only a stone's throw from where Lynda was so brutally murdered. But it will take four years, a scientific breakthrough, the largest manhunt in British crime annals, and the blooding of more than four thousand men before the real killer is found. - and - THE MURDERER'S GUILT WAS WRITTEN IN HIS OWN BLOOD. WHO WAS IT? The Brawling Ex-Soldier . . . one of the victims was his pretty stepdaughter. The Orange-Haired Punk . . . he'd been spotted near the crime scenes. The Kitchen Porter . . . young girls complained of his sexual attentions. The Baker's Assistant . . . he had been in trouble before. The Pipe Layer . . . he loved the ladies and skipped the country. If it were not for one astonishing genetic breakthrough, this rapist-murderer would still be loose today . . .
