Crime Scene: Inside the World of the Real CSIs Reviews
This book gives the reader lots of information about the real CSI groups and how they do their job. The technical information is great, because of the way they present it. Another aspect I found helpful was these cases they used to help the reader to understand the complex processes they use. The book has input from forensic scientists, prosecutors, and defense attorneys. The author also gives the reader of what the field experts deal with in court. I highly recommend this book if you have any interest in being a crime scene technician or law. You'll learn how all the departments work together as if they were family. This is a GREAT book to learn the difference between CSI, the TV show and the real crime scene technicians
Wonderful anecdotal accounts from those involved in crime investigation, for those of us wanting to get real after looking at CSI TV. Only problem are the "typos" It seems as though the printed version was scanned in—e.g., the word "the" was consistently spelled "die" so I had to interpolate. A little bit annoying, but the content was amazing.
Yes, another great read from Connie Fletcher. I recommend this if you are interested in forensics and how crime scene investigations are REALLY done.
This book has been added to my mortuary library. If you want true CSI, then read this one.
A note to anyone that is a fan of Fletcher's books. This text is the same as another book: (published the same year in hardback version) "Every Contact Leaves a Trace: Crime Scene Experts Talk About Their Work From Discovery Through Verdict."
