Praise for Evidence and Investigation

"Criminal prosecutions are all about proving guilt in accordance with the law of the land. What the law requires is eloquently outlined in Evidence and Investigation: From the Crime Scene to the Courtroom. The author team has explained the law of evidence and the practice of investigation so clearly and simply that this text promises to become the leading canon for police colleges.

The last chapter is the most important in the book and should be read by novice and veteran police officers alike. This chapter gives the best explanation that I have ever read of how error can creep into even the most well meaning investigation, and how to prevent that error.

Quite frankly, I was asked to write critical comments on the book, but I can find nothing critical to say. It is an instant classic in the field of criminal evidence and investigation."
