Faces of Evil Book Review Jan. 18 2005
By Ann C. Morland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a practicing forensic facial reconstruction specialist (what is now called forensic art) and instructor in the field, I am always looking for the published works of true crime forensic artists. Lois Gibson's new book, Faces of Evil, is a true `from the heart' story of both her life and her passion for her work. Without embellishment, I read the book with tears and laughter, with sadness and hope. Lois' account of her work is a true crime story that validates the reasons forensic artists choose to practice in this field. While the stories of her cases are exciting and most interesting, I found a kindred spirit in Lois when I read Chapter 14. I think if more law enforcement individuals read this chapter alone, forensic art would be more to the forefront of fighting crime and the public would be better served. Lois gives every forensic artist a gift in the last chapter as she tackles the difficult art of the composite interview. I highly recommend this book to every forensic artist, law enforcement person, and anyone in the general public.

Amazing March 5 2005
By Simon Sayz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read this book within 2 weeks, mostly during my break hours and riding the subway in NYC. Amazing book, from the beginning to the end is exciting. I just had to find out what happens next. I'm a college student and I'm just interested in something like CSI. I recommend this book to anyone, even if you aren't a forensic artist. This is truely amazing book of her life and the crimes she helped solved.

Very well written book about pursing evil Jan. 29 2007
By Stephanie Manley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The Faces of Evil is a very compelling book about how a tenacious forensic artist can help to put murderers, kidnappers, and rapists behind bars. The story of Lois Gibson is a very interesting one, as a victim of a violent crime herself, she brings much more when she visits when a crime victim than a person who was not a crime victim.

Lois Gibson fell into becoming a forensic artist. Her early training was drawing portaits at an amusement park. In her early career she spent time specializing in portraits, not foresenics. She would go on to pester the police department until she could prove that she could draw someone from description. Once allowed to do this, she proved she could do the job. While she wasn't immediately hired on at the Houston police department she would convince them to hire her full time, and later they did so.

She has drawn pictures of many different criminals that the end result was bringing many different criminals to justice. At times these pictures were the only way to bring in criminals. She has helped to catch abusive parents, murderers of children, rapists, and so much more. This is a story of one woman's journey to aide the public is solving crimes as well as a personal story of what can happen if you set your mind to succeede.

True crime with a twist; forensic artistry April 14 2009
By Sunbonnet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I couldn't put this book down. True compassion for victims and survivors of crime and fascinating cases. I just picked this book up for a quick look and ending up sitting for hours. Lois Gibson is an artist in so many ways: technically gifted with insight and kindness for the survivors that she helps. Highly recommended.
