Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You are about to commit a crime — on paper, that is. You need the details on surveillance tactics and police, FBI, and courtroom procedures to make your story authentic. Easy. All the information you need is in this classic book that is being re-released for a whole new audience of writers.

Here's the book no writer of murder mysteries, thrillers, action/adventure, true-crime, police procedurals, romantic suspense, and psychological mysteries — whether scripts or novels — can do without.

Book News Annotation:

Details on making crime stories realistic will help writers of mysteries and suspense. Fundamentals of investigation, procedures of law-enforcement agencies, criminal motives, weapons, and escape methods are outlined, and several glossaries define legal terminology and slang terms used in street gangs and the drug trade. This second edition contains new organization charts for the Los Angeles Police Department and Sheriff's Department. Roth wrote TV scripts and books for writers. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Here's the book no writer of murder mysteries, thrillers, action/adventure, true-crime, police procedurals, romantic suspense, and psychological mysteries, whether scripts or novels, should be without.

Synopsis:

This title offers a companion for all writers looking to add crackling accuracy and tension to their crime novels or scripts. A useful book to have when you need to bump off a main character; interrogate a subject; or find out what it is like to work in a morgue.
