I used this textbook in a Bachelor Degree level course called Criminal Investigation. It is easy to read and understand...you practically teach the material to yourself. I highly recommend it for college level courses. Very comprehensible and up to date text!
This text is not an easy ready by any means... however, it is thorough in explaining the many facets of criminal investigation for the entry-level criminal justice practitioner or student. It makes good use of the diagrams when needed, and I have decided to keep it for future reference.
As you may read from the many reviews, this book is a solid, well researched and filled with rich information.
It's out of edition now, but still new enough that you'll still get a lo of this book. It's very cheap used now, so it's a great addition to a bookshelf.
