A look at Criminal Investigations from a novelist's point of view. I used this book for research and found it informative and helpful. Excellent examples support clearly written passages throughout the book. Diagrams and checklists are an added bonus.

This book I purchased because I needed it for school. I bought it used from amazon's wholesale book vendors and came in from Indianapolis overnight (because I bought the wrong book initially), and it arrived in good condition. You'll be surprised all the case law that is enclosed in this book, and what kinds of crimes that were committed to develop those laws we currently have in ur country today.

Although this was rated a used book in "good" condition, I was pleasantly to find that, when it arrived, the book was actually like new. The pages were not torn and free of writing and highlighting. Very pleasantly surprised. Plus it was considerably cheaper than some used books rated "fair" with known tears and highlighting.

I used this book for an advanced criminal investigation class. I loved the book. It wasn't only text and it wasn't only examples. The important stuff wasn't hard to find and wasn't difficult to understand. It worked as a great guide to "solving our in class crime". (Southern Utah University Advanced Criminal Investigations)

I bought this for a Criminal Investigations class, many of the pages have bullet point lists that summarize and break down info. The text itself was written clearly so it's easy to read once and grasp. Taking notes on this book was a breeze yet rigorous enough for university studies. Great price as well.
