Some really great new info. that i've not seen in other research books. Drugs, uses, packaging, basically takes you from thinking about the crime, developing it, making it believable, processing it, putting your case together and getting it to court. Good resource.

A very informative book. Focuses mainly on Californian law, police force and prisons - but does have a section on capital punishment in all states of the US.

Often seems to slip into being a list of terms rather than a collection of suggestions, but a good start and sparks some ideas.
