Editorial Reviews


“Shooting Incident Reconstruction is an informative and comprehensive guide to the analysis of firearms at crime scenes ranging from accidental injuries to carefully planned murders . . . This book covers it all. No longer will investigators be forced to rely on eyewitness accounts alone; instead, they will be able to use the reconstructive aspects of firearms evidence to determine what did and did not happen at a crime scene.” - Law Enforcement Technology

In creating this book, author Lucien C. Haag drew from years of experience in the field, first as a criminalist and later as the former technical director of Phoenix, Ariz., Police Department's forensic laboratory. Shooting Incident Reconstruction provides an explanation of the factors surrounding ballistics, trajectory, and shooting scenes for both the layman and the professional. Key concepts are supported and illustrated by more than 100 diagrams and photographs, many of which are in color. Gun enthusiasts will find much of this book of interest... - American Rifleman

I recently purchased the Shooting Incident Reconstruction book by Lucien Haag and would highly recommend it for every forensic scientist who may examine this type of evidence. University's offering forensic science courses, as well as all forensic laboratory's, should have a copy available to their students / practitioners. The book contains an absolute wealth of material concerning the subject matter. Jim Hamby, Ph.D.

I met the author at the annual training seminar of the Association of Firearm and Toolmark examiners. I attended the authors shooting incident reconstruction class at Gunsights training facility in Paulding Arizona In 2004. The author is truly at the top of his field and his book in invaluable for work in this field. This book is a highly recommend.

A great book - a must for anyone in the field of Forensic Ballistics or students studying a forensic based degree. There are several well-worn copies of this book at the section in which I work. This has proved to be an invaluable reference during my initial training and subsequent case work. Many of the techniques detailed have been utilised to great affect at a shooting scene and back in the lab, especially range determination and the use of chemicals (e.g. DTO, Griess Test etc.) The explanations and general overview of the chemistry in this particular section is very useful. I have also found the chapters on bullet penetration/perforation and deflection/ricochet against various targets extremely useful and something that I regularly revisit.
