Sherlock Holmes ist nicht einfach nur ein Klassiker, mit seinen rationalen und wissenschafltichen Methoden ist er der Urvater der heute so beliebten Serien über Forensiker und Gerichtsmediziner (CSI, Der letzte Zeuge, Crossing Jordan). Da liegt es nahe, dass E.J. Wagner die Sherlock Holmes Geschichte gemeinsam mit den Anfängen der Kriminaltechnik unter die Lupe nimmt. Die Autorin beschreibt, mit welchen Aberglauben sich die Kriminalisten im 19. Jahrhundert noch herumschlagen mussten und mit welchen Tricks sie den Schurken auf die Schliche kamen. Elementar, wenn Sie sich für Forsensik, ihre Geschichte und den wohl berühmtesten Detektiven aller Zeiten interessieren.

Crime scene investigation involves the use and integration of scientific methods, physical evidence, and deductive reasoning in order to determine and establish the series of events surrounding a crime. The quality of the immediate crime scene response and the manner in which the crime scene is examined are critical to the success of the investigation. Evidence that is missed or corrupted by incomplete or improper handling can have a devastating effect on a case and keep justice from being served. The Practice of Crime Scene Investigation covers numerous aspects of crime scene investigation, including the latest in education and training, quality systems accreditation, quality assurance, and the application of specialist scientific disciplines to crime. The book discusses a range of basic and advanced techniques such as fingerprinting, dealing with trauma victims, photofit technology, the role of the pathologist and ballistic expert, and signal processing. It also reviews specialist crime scene examinations including clandestine laboratories, drug operations, arson, and explosives.

You will then use the case studies to walk through the investigative process and learn by example to create accurate case files. Learn crime scene investigation through original case studies that show you how to process and document a criminal investigation from first response to sending a report to the prosecutor’s office. Get up to speed on the state-of-the-art investigative techniques employed in the cases. Practice your investigative and report writing skills in the "Your Turn" chapter.
