(Signed by author local to Old School Bookshop)
This is the third book in ‘The DNA Detectives’ series written by Dr. Mandy Hartley. They are the first ever children’s fiction books for 7-12 year olds where the characters in the story use DNA and forensic science to solve a crime.

The latest story finds Annabelle and Harry once again embroiled in a forensic investigation. This time the investigative pair are on the path of a potential grave robber after the school hall collapses revealing an underground cave. Join Annabelle and Harry as they meet archaeologists and scientists who help them unravel the mysteries of the Stone Age. Discover fascinating details about cave paintings, extracting DNA from ancient bones, and finding out how tartar from ancient teeth can tell us what someone looked like and what they ate.

The DNA Detectives is a series of Whodunnit stories that introduce children to the ideas of scientific investigation and forensic science. The DNA Detectives books are fictional stories with a strong scientific context running throughout. Each book is a terrific read in its own right.
