This text offers an innovative approach to learning about crime scene investigation, taking the reader from the first response on the crime scene to documenting crime scene evidence and preparing evidence for courtroom presentation. It includes topics not normally covered in other texts, such as forensic anthropology and pathology, arson and explosives, and the electronic crime scene. Numerous photographs and illustrations complement text material. A chapter-by-chapter fictional narrative also provides the reader with a qualitative dimension of the crime scene experience. Crime Scene Investigation is further enhanced by the contributions of such recognized forensic scholars as William Bass and Arthur Bohannon.

Review quote

"Each chapter begins with an overview of the felony investigated in the case study and highlights a key area of crime scene investigation. You will then use the case studies to walk through the investigative process and learn by example to create accurate case files."-- The Journal, Fall/Winter 2013 "This practical guide to crime scene investigation was created with the help of 18 graduate students, and thus is a work `by students for students.' Frequent case studies appear, coupled with regular student assignments that walk them through the process of creating complete and accurate case files. Each chapter begins with key terms and ends with discussion questions."- Reference & Research Book News, December 2013

"I found the read interesting and enjoyable and is a refreshing approach for anyone looking to develop their knowledge in the area."- Gemma Lloyd, MCSFS, Scenes of Crime Officer, Bedfordshire Police
