Waiting for minimum critic reviews


If the devil’s in the details, then the crime scene investigator’s got him: conducting searches, collecting evidence, photographing, scrutinizing, analyzing—pursuing the culprit right down to the last scrap of proof. Whether you’d like to become a crime scene investigator or simply want to see what it takes, look no further than this book.  Like a top-notch forensics expert, author Henry M. Holden traces the path that crime scene investigators follow as they learn and ply their trade. His behind-the-scenes look takes us from application to training, crime scene to lab, revealing the fine points of securing, examining, and processing evidence; identifying victims, and reenacting the crime; conducting police lineups and interviews, and administering polygraphs; and forensics and evidence analysis.
