The second edition of Evidence and Investigation is an up-to-date guide for readers seeking the technical and practical knowledge needed to effectively handle evidence from the crime scene to the courtroom. The author team draws on their decades of real-world experience in criminal investigation and forensic science to provide a thorough overview of the different types of evidence, how that evidence can be used, and the laws that govern it.

Modern day investigations are complex, but this text has readers covered with information on recognizing, gathering, preserving, and presenting evidence, as well as protocols for avoiding factors that often contribute to errors during an investigation. The text also touches on relevant legal, scientific, and academic perspectives to provide a well-rounded understanding of various investigative practices and outcomes.
