Reviews

"In my opinion, Hess' Criminal Investigation has always been the most comprehensive textbook for criminal investigation. It provides all the basics associated with any criminal investigation and then provides detailed, in-depth explanation of the evidence and procedures involved in the investigation of specific crimes."

"This book is very well designed and I really applaud the authors for their excellent research, concise writing, identification of terms, and issues highlighted in boxes."
