It's a clear, thorough examination of the fundamentals of criminal investigation and forensic science, as practiced in the US. Written by nationally recognized criminal investigation expert Michael Lyman, this text parallels the steps of the criminal investigation to give you a well-rounded understanding of the work of the investigator.
