Rezensionen
"This is a valuable resource text for anyone training crime scene investigators or in being one. It is wonderfully comprehensive in its treatment of the discipline from basic critical logic and management through the intimidating complexities of today's crime scene processing. [...] It would be suggested reading for all laboratory forensic scientists who should want to know what the bits and pieces they are analyzing in the laboratory really mean in the context of crime scene investigation and crime reconstruction." --CSEye ".crime scene investigators will learn that returning to this book after each crime scene will lead to steady improvement of their skills from initial contact with a crime through testimony in court. The Science of Crime Scene is the first successful crime scene investigation manual for the information age." --Karl Williams, Chief Medical Examiners, Office of the Allegheny County Medical Examiner, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA "The second edition of The Science of Crime Scenes is not only excellent text for forensic scientists and crime scene investigators, but also a great reference book for the detective, prosecutor, and defense attorney. As the end user of the forensic sciences, I must understand what is possible (and not) as well as the mindset that is behind the work. This book provides that and more, and will be a well highlighted occupant of my bookshelf." - James Trainum (Criminal Case Consultant, Homicide Detective (Retired)
