Review:

"Wide variety of topics"--Christian Bolden

"My students love true life examples, and this book has plenty of those...The chapters are long enough to inform the student of the subject matter, but not too long to discourage reluctant readers...Very well written and thought out.The author speaks on great authority on the subject matter."

--Stephen Ruegger

"Well written to keep the student engaged throughout the chapter...The book does an excellent job organizing the current and past explanations of IPH."

--Shawn Keller

"The text would be a great companion piece for a profiling or criminal investigation course. If a program offered a "murder" themed course, would be an excellent fit."

--Cathryn Lavery

"Clear and concise writing, combination of academic and practitioner's points of view and pedagogical features used."

--Gordana Rabrenovic

"I found it to be very thorough and well organized. I felt the selection of case studies were good and up-to-date."

--Cathryn F. Lavery, PhD
