The author is a world reknown mystery writer and forensics expert.  She turned her skills to solving one of the most perplexing mysteries of the age, and reveals the identity of Jack the Ripper.  Using profiling, research, and mitochondrial DNA, Cornwell proves her claim that the case is indeed closed.

One of the best books I've read in a long time.  This is a biography of the Apostle Paul, warts and all.

The origins of fingerprinting, which is much more interesting than it sounds.  Three men race to be the one who goes down in history as the one reponsible for the scientific application of fingerprinting in crime detection.  A fascinating book, and great glimpse into Victorian Age England. 

The Curious Incident

Of The Dog In The Night-time

Christopher, a young man with autism, finds his neighbor's dog skewered by a pitchfork and decides to solve the mystery of who did the deed.  By far, the best book I've read in 2003.
