Liberty Hardy

Senior Contributing Editor

Liberty Hardy is an unrepentant velocireader, writer, bitey mad lady, and tattoo canvas. Turn-ons include books, books and books. Her favorite exclamation is “Holy cats!” Liberty reads more than should be legal, sleeps very little, frequently writes on her belly with Sharpie markers, and when she dies, she’s leaving her body to library science. Until then, she lives with her three cats, Millay, Farrokh, and Zevon, in Maine. She is also right behind you. Just kidding! She’s too busy reading. Twitter: @MissLiberty

forensicsForensics: What Bugs, Burns, Prints, DNA and More Tell Us About Crime by Val McDermid

A really fascinating book! One of the most wildly talented crime writers working today takes a real-life look at the science behind crimes, and what every little piece of evidence can mean. McDermid takes a look at the history behind the science of solving crimes, as well as the people who solve them. This book is every bit as riveting as one of her novels. (Which you should definitely check out, if you haven’t already.)

Backlist bump: Dead Men Do Tell Tales: The Strange and Fascinating Cases of a Forensic Anthropologist by William Maples
