Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Renowned for being THE definitive source of homicide investigation, Practical Homicide Investigation: Tactics, Procedures, and Forensic Techniques is the recognized protocol used by investigative divisions of major police departments throughout the world. It is also the text used in most police academies, including the prestigious FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. It emphasizes essential procedures, combines detailed techniques with instructive case studies, and outlines the foundation on which to build a solid, prosecutable case.

The fundamental criminal investigative techniques stressed in the Fourth Edition are crucial for effective inquiry into sudden and violent death. Eminent author, lecturer, consultant, and expert witness Vernon J. Geberth begins the book with a comprehensive discussion of homicide crime scenes. The book evolves chronologically from initial police notification, the correct police response that follows, and the subsequent steps necessary to conduct an intelligent investigation. It then delves into more technical aspects of homicide investigation, augmented with numerous pictures and full-color illustrations that involve pertinent case histories.

The book features two new chapters along with major revisions of those from the previous edition. In addition it contains 675 photos and illustrations - including 300 new entries that incorporate depictions of wound structures and procedures that portray exactly what to do and how to do it. All illustrations are presented in full color, including new medical-legal drawings for instruction and courtroom testimony.

Vernon Geberth was featured in an interview on News 14 Carolina in Fayetteville discussing his 3-day seminar on Practical Homicide Investigation.

Book News Annotation:

Homicide and forensic consultant Geberth, a former New York City detective, presents the new edition of his "best practice" investigation guide for the homicide professional, updating the text to account for new forensic techniques and investigative procedures. He has organized the information to mirror the course of a typical homicide investigation from initial notification to police through the procedural steps of a proper investigation, including the crime scene search, estimation of time of death, identification of the deceased, death notifications, collection of evidence, the autopsy, news media policy, identification of suspects, criminal personality profiling, and supervision and management issues. The new edition includes two new chapters on the application of DNA technology and equivocal death investigations, those investigations involving staged crime scenes or a lack of determination of homicide or suicide. He incorporates illustrative case material, including photographs, throughout the text. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
