I retired as a State Investigator. The book was my bible for 24 years. I will still not part with it. Loaded with photos, especially the homicide section. No other book can come close. Charles O'Hara was a genius. Also check out Sirchie Fingerprint Labs for their criminal inv powders, eqiuiptment and free catalogue/criminalistis book on-line
