5.0 out of 5 stars Best CRime Scene Book and affordable 25 Feb 2008
By Dale - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a police officer in the crime scene area and this book impressed me. It was recently published so the material is not outdated and it is VERY well written. I have much more expensive books written by Barry Fisher, this is an affordable, current well done book on how crime scene works.
