Criminal investigation is a very poplular subject these days with all of the CSI's and Law an Orders, but what about the facts, what is real? This book is the textbook for my Principles of Criminal Investigations class, part of my Investigatvie Services major in Criminal Justice. It very acuratly illistrates what criminal investigation is about, it is very much about the factual part of invetigations. Also it is not just about investigating the scene of a crime but its very vividly describes crimes and criminals as well as other aspects of the investigation like the psychology and methods invovled in ivertviewing.

This is a must have for any futre investigator.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Christopher Cooper on July 11, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This general textbook is written in a well-organized manner. It presents the common topics associated with criminal investigations: documentation, report writing, suspect identification and methods used for crime scene surveys. The author makes use of recent court decisions during the presentation of his topics. The chapters are logically placed so that it is easy to see how an investigation would take place. There are several illustrations and drawings, which help the reader identify the topic being discussed. This edition is written in easy to read and comprehend sections. Technical words are explained in detail.
The basics of criminal investigation are covered within the textbook - advanced topics such as criminal interrogation and procedures are briefly discussed but they are not the main focus of this book. This textbook provides an excellent foundation for the criminal justice student who is planning a career in law enforcement.

i bought this book used. Amazon described book to be in "good condition". It was a very accurate. The outside book had some basic wear and tear but nothing you would not expect from a used book and the inside of book was in very good condition. There were only a couple of chapters that were highlighted or underlined but nothing that makes it difficult to read. I bought at a huge discount and it was money well spent.

Although this book is written for the law enforcement community as a text book, it's not the dry content that you normally expect to find. I think this book will cross over to the general public that enjoys crime solving interests. I don't know if because we watch CSI, NCIS, and the host of other great crime scene investigator TV programs or not. But this book will hold your interest and can be used as a great resource of an aspiring writer punching out that great crime novel on the keyboard.
