About this product
- DescriptionTrue crime and serial killer expert David Elio Malocco (author of Who's Who Serial Killers, The Top 100) has w updated his best-selling book on Forensic Science and Crime Scene Analysis. The author is a former top criminal lawyer with dual degrees in law and psychology and diplomas in criminal profiling and forensic science. The book is essentially an introduction to Forensic Science and is the perfect companion for anyone interested in studying forensic science or crime scene analysis; anyone who writes about crime; lawyers, solicitors and barristers involved in criminal law; anyone involved in law enforcement or, in fact, anyone who reads crime vels or watches crime programs on television. Just how accurate are crime programs like CSI: New York, True Detective, Criminal Minds and Dexter? Apparently, there are far removed from reality and mask the clear division of labor which exists between crime science investigators and law enforcement operatives. The book is packed full of information and is written in a very easy to read and witty style - thing like a text book. The first part of the book deals with crime scene analysis - what happens at a crime scene, or as David Elio Malocco puts it - what's supposed to happen and covers the basics like crime scene definition, recognition and documentation. It lists exactly the sort of evidence crimes scene investigators look for at a crime scene. The second part is an introduction to forensic science. Once the evidence is collected at the crime scene various procedures and tests are carried out in the laboratory to help link the evidence to the crime. It covers such diverse topics as fingerprints, firearms, ballistics, computers, autopsies, forensic pathology, poisons and forensic toxicology, the identification of decaying bodies and skeletons, cranio-facial reconstruction, serology, fraud, DNA and cyber crime as well as providing a very comprehensive section on search warrants and other aspect of law and criminal evidence. This edition has been revised, updated and greatly expanded. It is w more than twice the size of the original book with extra sections on forensic photography, blood spatter analysis, trace evidence, impressions, ballistics, bomb-making, explosives, toxicology, digital evidence, search warrants, forensic computer investigation, DNA testing and advances, Miranda rights, police interrogation techniques, and the law relating to the admissibility of confessions. There is also a much extended Glossary and complete new chapters on the Admissibility of Expert Evidence and Criminal Law Evidence. But, perhaps the most enjoyable chapter is the tongue in cheek one entitled Committing the Perfect Crime which could have been called Everything you need to kw about how t to get caught but were afraid to ask. The book is a classic companion for anyone interested in crime.
