Studying the use of  forensics in the mystery can be an extremely useful device for examining evidentiary rules as well as a lawyer's ethical obligations or a physician's code of conduct (not to mention the ethical obligations of other professionals). Many of Patricia Cornwell's Dr. Kay Scarpetta mysteries revolve around a crisis of conscience, as do some of Aaron Elkins' works. Another writer who features a forensic sleuth is Kathy Reichs. Malcolm Shuman's mysteries also feature forensic sleuthing.
