Industry Reviews

The authors of this book supply 150 things that the security practitioner should know about investigation. They forgot one: "Buy this book." The wide range of topics in the slender volume renders this book an excellent resource for the department administrator, the law enforcement executive, the supervisor, the hands-on practitioner, and the occasional investigator. There is no task performed by an investigator that doesn't receive some mention in this litle masterpiece. - Security Management, August 2000
