Making Crime Pay is an invaluable reference to criminal law, evidence, and procedure and the potential it holds for breathtaking plots and dramatic storytelling.

Editorial Reviews

Daryl W. Clemens
The book is an excellent overview of the criminal justice system, and far more readable than a criminal justice textbook. I found the historical background, and the historic footnotes throughout the text to be very interesting and informative. . . . A writer looking to set a story in the criminal justice system should find plenty of ideas here.

Excellent! Absorbing! The most comprehensive and easy-to-understand guide to criminal law I've seen. A must-have resource for writers of mysteries, thrillers, romantic suspense and non-fiction."

Andrea S. Campbell's new book MAKING CRIME PAY is the perfect reference for students, attorneys, anyone involved in law enforcement, even mystery writers. It would have made my research a lot easier if I'd had a copy when I wrote my first mystery. Campbell covers everything you need to know in a comprehensive guide that's well-written, easy to access, and thorough. I highly recommend the book to anyone interested in criminal law.
