The wizard of Berkeley by Eugene B Block( Book )

6 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The chapters of this book are culled from the notebooks of a newspaperman ... and from the police and court records of a number of baffling mysteries over many years. They are mysteries that seemed insoluble but which were unraveled through the extraordinary skill of one man, one of the recognized pioneers in scientific crime detection in America, a man of science whose methods paved the way for many of the scientific procedures regarded today as routine in police laboratories throughout the country. So remarkable were the achievements of Edward Oscar Heinrich in his peculiar field and so far did his reputation spread through this country and abroad that the writer felt impelled to piece together for this volume the notes gathered through years of newspaper work. They are cases in which truth stands out as stranger than fiction and in which the actual accomplishments of Mr. Heinrich are revealed as more brilliant than those of any novelist's imaginary master criminologist." --
