Helena Greenwood, a doctor with a PhD in chemical pathology, was embarking on a new, exciting career in biotechnology when she became a victim of sexual assault in her own home. She survived, but before she could appear in court as the key witness against her attacker, she was found brutally murdered. Everyone believed that her past attacker was the killer, but there was not enough evidence to convict him-until ten years later, when a district attorney working "cold cases" used Helena's own DNA research to finally bring her killer to justice. Pointing from the Grave is not only a riveting true-crime story but also a fascinating history of the development of DNA research and its role in forensics. It's also an unforgettable story about an unforgettable woman.
