This book is a must read for any serious student of criminal and forensic investigation. The detailed theory is skilfully brought to life through case studies and examples of practical application, which give an excellent insight into the mechanics and complexity of investigating serious and major crime. Highly recommended.
Retired Detective Inspector, Hampshire Constabulary CID and Major Crime Department
A superb investigation of the investigators. Any student, of any experience, wanting to know about the latest ways of reducing the fallibility of humans in divining the 'truth' of a possible crime should read this book. You are taken step by step through the stages of investigation and given a thorough test of your prejudices.
