by Patricia Wiltshire

I am counting this book for #Popsugar prompt 39: Revolving around a puzzle or game
For what greater puzzle is there than catching a killer?

This book is very interesting as Wiltshire takes us through both the theory and practical application of forensic botany.
Pollen, spores, leaf fragments and the such can help the learned eye place body or a crime very specifically in time and space. I think that that is amazing.
Wiltshire mixes her development as a botanist into her role as the first forensic botanist in Britain with her personal life with references to marriages, children and parents.
She is clearly brilliant professionally but had some horrible real life events to deal with along the way.

I thought this book well written and fascinating – really worth reading if you are even vaguely interested in solving puzzles.
