    Gr. 3^-7. In this companion to The Bone Detectives (1996), Jackson introduces young readers to the forensic scientists who track down criminals who harm wild animals. She recounts details of an actual 1993 case involving a bull elk slain for his antlers, which was solved by the scientists at the National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory in Ashland, Oregon. In a smoothly written text that unfolds almost like a mystery novel, Jackson explains how the detectives analyze clues, make use of sophisticated electronic equipment, and follow tips to solve crimes. Interspersed throughout are "Wild Files," sidebars describing current wildlife law, the various jobs in animal crime labs, and efforts to prevent the poaching of endangered species. Engaging full-color photographs help clarify the text and will appeal to browsers. A list of follow-up suggestions and a glossary of terms are appended. A book that will be welcomed by mystery fans and anyone who cares about animals. ((Reviewed April 1, 2000)) Copyright 2000 Booklist Reviews
