by Dean Koontz and Kevin J. Anderson

This is not a retelling of the original novel. Instead it is a look at what comes after that first story. This is as laden with moral questions as the original novel.

Of Dolls and Murder


****
This is a documentary that is about the way in which crime scenes are investigated. It moves you through the history of forensics with focus on Frances Glessner Lee and the way that she changed how crime scenes were looked at. I found this to be engaging and informative. I’m giving it the 4 stars rather then the 5 because I found a little unfocused. I disliked the way that it meandered back and forth between history, social review and current forensic science. Each topic really deserves to be its own thing. While the information presented on each topic was rich and engaging, I would have preferred something a touch more focused on one of the three. This is something worth watching as an introduction to the topic; especially if you are not familiar with the history.
