A thumb print left at the scene of a grisly murder. Fingerprints taken from a getaway car used in a bank robbery. A palm print recovered from the shattered glass door of a burglarized home. Indeed, where crimes are committed, careless perpetrators will invariably leave behind the critical pieces of evidence—most likely in the form of fingerprints—needed to catch and convict them. But the science of fingerprint identification isn’t always as cut and dry as detective novels and movies make it out to be. Quantitative-Qualitative Friction Ridge Analysis, a new book in the ongoing Practical Aspects of Criminal and Forensic Investigations series, examines the latest methods and techniques in the science of friction ridge identification, or ridgeology. David R. Ashbaugh examines every facet of the discipline, from the history of friction ridge identification and its earliest pioneers and researchers, to the scientific basis and the various steps of the identification process. The structure and growth of friction skin and how it can leave latent or visible prints are examined, as well as advanced identification methods in ridgeology, including Poroscopy, Edgeoscopy, Pressure Distortion and Complex or Problem Print Analysis. The book, which features several detailed illustrations and photographs, also includes a new method for Palmar Flexion Crease Identification (palm lines) designed by the author and which has helped solve several criminal cases where fingerprints were not available. For crime scene technicians, forensic identification specialists, or anyone else pursuing a career in forensic science, this book is arguably the definitive source in the science of friction ridge identification.

Key features include examples, checklists, and flow charts for evidence handling and routing. CSIs, fire investigators, homicide investigators, accident investigators, police executives, and students of forensic science will benefit from this thorough approach to how the crime scene—and the personnel charged with tending to the evidence—should be managed.

It's a national epidemic and an international conspiracy. Drugs have infested our society with a vengeance, making the drug enforcement agent a central figure in the war on drugs. International training teams of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) have traditionally taught the special skills required by all drug agents. Until now, there has never been a book for public consumption devoted strictly to this specialized field of criminal investigation. Global Drug Enforcement: Practical Investigative Techniques provides basic and advanced methods for conducting modern drug investigations. With coverage of source countries, drug identification, conspiracy investigations, clandestine laboratories, drug intelligence, and money laundering, the book includes the topics that every detective assigned to a drug investigation unit must know. The chapter on drug identification discusses the drugs that all law enforcement officers are likely to encounter including heroin, marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, PCP, and the emerging club drugs of Ecstasy, GHB, and Ketamine. A glossary of common terms used in drug enforcement and chapters on the nexus between drugs and terrorism provide additional insight. Based on the training and experiences of a recently retired Supervisory Special Agent of the DEA who was a former instructor for DEA's Office of Training at the FBI Academy, this book provides domestic and international agencies with a comprehensive reference on contemporary drug enforcement. It greatly expands on many of the topics that DEA employees receive in their training and covers the areas that investigators need to understand in order to conduct safe and effective drug operations.

No two crime scenes are the same, and each scene presents a unique set of obstacles to overcome. While there is no one "right" way to handle every situation, the goal of collecting evidence while preserving its integrity remains the constant motivation of the crime scene investigator.

From the O. J. Simpson case to the CSI franchise, more and more of us are aware of and curious about the world of forensic science. Cynthia Holt takes that interest and directs it toward the literature that supports and defines the study of how evidence is discovered at a crime scene, interpreted in a lab, and used in a court of law. Her bibliography, grouped by type of material, covers topics such as ballistics, DNA analysis, entymology, expert witnessing, and facial imaging/reconstruction, as well as contributions from academic fields such as anthropology, linguistics, and engineering.

Querkopf Wilson ist ein Roman von Mark Twain. Schauplatz der Geschichte ist die heimelige, etwas verschlafene Kleinstadt Dawson's Landing am Mississippi, die wie Deer Lick und auch wie St. Petersburg an Mark Twains Heimatstadt Hannibal in Missouri erinnert. Dawson's Landing ist eine Sklavenhalterstadt, in der man von Getreideanbau und Schweinezucht lebt und in der Schwarze sozial schlecht gestellt sind. Das muss auch die zwanzigjährige, selbstbewusste Roxy feststellen, eine Sklavin im Haus von Percy Driscoll. Als dort ein Dieb gesucht wird, droht Driscoll allen Schwarzen mit dem Verkauf "in den Süden" - dorthin, wo man noch brutalere Methoden der Unterdrückung pflegt. Roxy sorgt sich um die Zukunft ihres Sohns Valet de Chambre, genannt Chambers, und entschließt sich kurzerhand zum Kindertausch: Sie stülpt ihrem wenige Monate alten Sohn die Kleider von Thomas Bechet Driscoll, genannt Tom, über, dem gleichaltrigen Sohn ihres Herrn, den sie an Mutterstatt betreut. Niemand bemerkt den Tausch, denn wie Roxy ist Chambers ein Schwarzer mit weißer Haut. Samuel Clemens (1835-1910), besser bekannt unter seinem Pseudonym Mark Twain - war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. Mark Twain ist vor allem als Autor der Bücher über die Abenteuer von Tom Sawyer und Huckleberry Finn bekannt. Er war ein Vertreter des amerikanischen Realismus und ist besonders wegen seiner humoristischen, von Lokalkolorit und genauen Beobachtungen sozialen Verhaltens geprägten Erzählungen sowie aufgrund seiner scharfzüngigen Kritik an der amerikanischen Gesellschaft berühmt. In seinen Werken beschreibt er den alltäglichen Rassismus; seine Protagonisten durchschauen die Heuchelei und Verlogenheit der herrschenden Verhältnisse.

Stehlen und Stehlen lassen: Das nächste große Ding der Meisterklasse Seit zwei Monaten ist Katarina Bishop berühmt: als Anführerin der Diebesbande, die das sicherste Museum der Welt beraubt hat. Sehr zum Missfallen der Verwandtschaft will sie aber immer noch nicht die Familientradition als gewöhnliche Kriminelle fortsetzen. Die Meisterdiebin Kat spezialisiert sich auf anderes: Sie bringt verschwundene Wertgegenstände ihren rechtmäßigen Besitzern wieder, sie stiehlt sie zurück. Als sie von einer alten Dame den Auftrag erhält, den Kleopatra-Smaragd wiederzubeschaffen, kann Kat der Herausforderung nicht widerstehen. Doch es gibt drei Probleme: Erstens: der Stein wurde seit über dreißig Jahren nicht mehr in der Öffentlichkeit gezeigt, zweitens: er bleibt nie lange bei demjenigen, der ihn gerade hat. Doch das dritte Problem bereitet Kat und ihrer Crew die meisten Sorgen: der Kleopatra-Smaragd ist verflucht. Auf der Jagd rund um den Globus stellt Kat fest, dass die althergebrachten Tricks diesmal nichts nutzen. Also folgt sie ihren eigenen Regeln ...
