It slowly evolved over more than two hundred years of testing, starting with tests for arsenic ..read more

46: The Critical Opening Scene
Criminal Mischief: The Art and Science of Crime Fiction
by DP Lyle
10M ago
Your opening scene carries a heavy load. It must hook the reader, introduce the story question—and often the protagonist/antagonist—-reveal the setting/story world, evoke emotion in the reader, and reveal the voice and tone of the story. That’s a lot of work, and pressure on the writer.

Episode #47: Amnesia and Trauma
Criminal Mischief: The Art and Science of Crime Fiction
by DP Lyle
10M ago
Amnesia has been a part of fiction for many years. Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity is a classic example. The character was apparently based on the real-life case of Ansel Bourne, who in 1887 was likely the first documented case of amnesia. Even Agatha Christie suffered her own brush with amnesia—or maybe not. This one has been the source of argument and conjecture for decades. I frequently receive questions from crime writers about amnesia so it remains a common topic. In fact, amnesia questions were included in my Question and Answer books.

Episode #43: Gunshot Wound Analysis
Criminal Mischief: The Art and Science of Crime Fiction
by DP Lyle
10M ago
In the criminal investigation or injuries or deaths from gunshot wounds (GWSs), the anatomy of the entry and exit wounds, particularly the former, can reveal the nature of the weapon, the bullet size and characteristics, and of great importance, the distance between the muzzle and the entry wound. This distance can be a game changer when distinguishing between a self-inflicted wound (suicidal or accidental) and one from the hand of another (accidental or homicidal). It can also support or refute suspect and/or witness statements and help with crime scene reconstruction. A wound from a gun seve ..read more
