I am not a big fan of reading oral interviews nor of collected letters but as a faithful watcher of many [too many] TV crime shows, I feel obliged to educate myself a bit about the real thing. Fletcher's collection of quotes from various crime fighting personnel has many interesting passages and quite a few that I could have skipped. Thus, a mere two stars but not an addition to the Unfinished pile.
I very much enjoyed these real life vignettes of CSI as it works in the real world and not on TV.
The chapters are a collection of short(~100 words) to several pages of direct quotes from people working in the Crime Scene Investigation field, and shed many insights not only into human behaviors that we will all recognize, but some amazing stories where fate simply solved the crime.
High recomend it.
If you want to know what investigating crime scenes is really like, as opposed to the dramatized version in TV and film, this is a must read. In these pages, life is more fascinating than fiction.
