Traces: Framed! by Malcolm Rose.
Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin Company: Boston, 2005.

Luke is the youngest person to qualify for forensic investigation at the age of 16. The same day he passes his exam, he is assigned his first case-on campus. As he gathers evidence, two more people are murdered, and his first priority is to prove to his robotic assistant that he is not the guilty party. The time the Authorities have allotted him to solve the murders is running low, and he still has 4 strong suspects.

The book carries the mystery and excitement of forensic investigation without the gore and horror. It is absorbing until the end with evidence pointing to several people but not all overlapping. Luke investigating himself as the prime suspect adds a nice twist.
