Geberth; Vernon J. Practical Homicide Investigation Inc, New York, USA,Review:
"[A] must-have if you frequently deal with criminal defense work, an excellent primer on homicide investigation . Geberth, a retired Lt. Commander of the New York City Police Department, has produced what may be the finest, most detailed guide for homicide investigators ever written, and almost every chapter has been updated for this new edition to reflect the ever-changing technology ." - PI Magazine, Sept./Oct. 2004 "[T]he result of [the author's] endeavors is a book which is in the first place, so easy to read, but secondly so cleverly constructed as to both inform the reader but also to be so available as a reference manual. I found it extremely readable [T]he information conveyed is very explicit. The themes are well illustrated either by case reports or by photographic images and these aides are clearly presented without distracting from the impact of the text. I feel that it is a very valuable addition to any library interested in assisting in Forensic Medicine, no matter in which discipline. I would commend it as a very readable, well set out volume which I am sure would prove its use in many instances." - Dr. William P. Ryan, O.A.M. Quotes to use as needed: "Using his personal experience and a network of professionals, Geberth has compiled, in one resource, a book that covers every imaginable aspect of homicide investigation, offering guidance for most circumstances encountered during investigations. ... This is an excellent and relevant text that far surpasses anything available to the profession today." -Robert C. Shaler, Ph.D., Department of Health, Office of Chief Medical Examiner, City of New York "Vern Geberth doesn't tell you about a homicide scene. He puts you in themiddle of it. You see it. You feel it. You smell it. You hear it. You live it. His third edition is the best yet." -Larry Welch, Director, Kansas Bureau of Investigation "As a practitioner myself, I highly recommend the book to all law enforcement personnel who are involved in the investigation of homicides." -Edward J. McNelley, Captain Detective, Boston Police Department "This third edition... is the classic from which all other books on this topic will be rated. Simply put, this book provides the information today's investigators need. No other book comes close." -Bruce Cameron, Editorial Director, Law and Order "This is an incredible piece of work written in practical terms.... This truly is the ultimate resource for death scene investigation!" -Richard Holden, Training Officer, Brooklyn Park Police "Geberth has succeeded in accomplishing the gargantuan task of revising this book, which is extensive in its scope and breadth, covering practically every circumstance and providing valuable pearls throughout." -Frederick T. Zugibe, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Examiner, Rockland County, New York "The most comprehensive publication ever written on homicide investigation." -Captain Thomas Nye, Warwick Police Department, Rhode Island, and Executive Director, Northeast Law Enforcement Officers Association "I believe that the extent of Geberth's knowledge of all aspects of homicide investigations is unmatched anywhere in the world, and this third edition is testimony to this knowledge." -Captain Thomas J. Cronin, Chicago Police Department "The combination of [Practical Homicide Investigation, Third Edition] and the new Practical Homicide Investigation Checklist and Field Guide makes this themost complete manual on homicide investigations in the country. It should not only be mandatory reading for new investigators, but it is a great reference manual for even the most seasoned homicide investigator. This is a must for every investigator and belongs in every homicide office." -Jerry Keller, Sheriff, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department "As a Deputy Chief with forty years' experience, I am convinced that this book is an absolute must-read for all homicide investigators. It should also be studied by all law enforcement professionals who want a clear, concise, detailed guide to the investigation of homicides." Lt. Colonel James J. Hackett, Deputy Chief of Police, City of St. Louis, Missouri "Homicide investigation is a profound duty. As an officer entrusted with such a duty, it is incumbent upon you to develop an understanding of the dynamics and principles of professional homicide investigation."
