HASH(0x9d1681d4) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9d1a7060) out of 5 stars 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.

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.
HASH(0x9cee342c) out of 5 stars Criminal sketch artist's true story April 1 2013
By Tim Kramer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Contrary to what the title connotes, Lois Gibson says, faces of evil are "always ordinary" when not in the act of violence (except for their shark eyes). Lois implores the reader to advocate for the use of sketch artists by law enforcement agencies and she has evidence. One in three of her sketches helps bring in a criminal. She emphasizes that 90% of creating a reliable sketch depends on the artist's ability to conduct empathetic interviews. Only 10% has to do with drawing. Her stories are fascinating and I would highly recommend "Faces of Evil" to those interested in law enforcement and art alike.
