This introduction to the inner workings of America's best forensic training school lacked only one major component--a good editor. The most startling, and unintentionally amusing, goof took place in the first paragraph of chapter 12, in which the authors are describing a visit to a prison:

"Vile, palatable wickedness hangs along every hallway like spiderwebs..."

Palatable? Hee.

While much of the information on forensic evidence and techniques is old hat to longtime readers of similar works, they scatter startling new information throughout the book, and their anecdotes are often priceless. A worthy addition to any forensic buff's bookshelf. But let's hope that if a second edition is ever issued, they get themselves a better proofreader than Microsoft spellcheck...
