“As well as providing an introductory approach to the subject, the book offers further insights from multidisciplinary and applied perspectives without becoming overly dense in scientific details. … this book is highly commended. … Smith and Bond’s book is highly suitable as it will offer a most appropriate platform for more informed insights both to students and practitioners of either forensic science or criminal justice.” (Dave Walsh, British Journal of Criminology, Vol. 57 (5), September, 2017) “Having a book that advocates such a multidisciplinary approach is great, particularly when one of the authors is so experienced in scene investigation … . The book is clearly written from the perspective of at least one experienced crime scene examiner as there are many practical details about scene preservation, examination and recording. ... books of this type are important introductions to non-experts and a book that is readable, as is this one, are of value … .” (Dr. Anna Sandiford, Interfaces, Issue 88, December, 2016)
