Customer Reviews

Excellent textbook  March 15, 2011
by


I purchased this textbook because it was a required text for a Criminalist course during my undergraduate studies in Criminal Justice. This textbook manages to explain complicated things such as DNA, and other techniques, and tests that are used during the course of an investigation in simple terms that are easy to understand. I recommend this book to students, professors, and practitioners in the criminal justice field.
This is without any doubt, in my opinion, the best book ever
