I have read this book and must admit it is probaly one of the best resources in death investigation a officer could have. I have heard "seasoned" officer and investigators tell me that they wished this book was available when they were just starting out. However, it remains a very good reference for officers in any stage of thier career. If you are involved in death investigations in any way BUY THIS BOOK! you will find plenty of usefull information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative 5 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have always had something of a special interest in how homicide and forensic investigations are performed. This book is very similar to a text book. It is divided into 3 sections: The crime scene; Homicide Investigation; and a Scientific section. It's very informative as it explains many things that you may not have thought about. For instance, once you are dead, when and where do the maggots, ants and beetles come from. It's all explained in this handy reference manual. Pick it up today, it's worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely A Must Read 24 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the most comprehensive book on field investigation I have ever seen. Covers death scene evidence gathering in a manner that insures every detail is observed and that a strong chain of evidence is developed (hope the LAPD has a bunch of these!). As a writer this one is now tops on my list for research involving murder, both for the intrepid police investigator and for the perp to get away with the crime. Excellent book - can't say much more than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you wanted to know and more. 22 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book provides a tasteful look into death investigation. It also provides statistics on just about every part of it (ie. A chart of the speeds one obtains while falling, a look at electricity and what to look for at every step of the way). I highly recommend this book to anyone seriously interested in this subject. It's 800+ pages will answer just about anything you want to know.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CRIMINAL JUSTICE STUDENT 9 July 1999
By Jaybird176@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I think this book is a really good tool to learn from for a person that just wants to see how Death Investigation works and for a serious person pursuing a job in the area. I got the book and I couldn't put it down for a minute. At my school, the University of Alabama, we don't have any forensics classes in the criminal justice department on death investigation and when I saw this book I knew it was for me. I have learned so much from this book on all forms of death and this has really sparked my interest in getting a job as a forensic investigator. This book shows you that you never know what will happen next. But most importantly, it covers all the issues down to the precise detail and the right procedure on how to investigate. I know one thing for sure, if I get into this line of work, this book will be like my best man if I ever need a reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars death Investigator's HandBook 6 May 2002
By Steven A. Blase - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the book! It cover's more then any other book I have read so far. I am retired Sgt. from the NYS Child Abuse Unit, and I have seen the worst of the worst out there, but I wish I had this book with me on every case I ever worked! The information stored in here and procedure's to follow and follow up make it worth reading this book cover to cover as many times as you can! Bravo Mr. Eliopulos, job well done!
