DEFINITELY A FIVE-STAR PLUS!
on September 27, 2001
Readers interested in crinimology, law enforcement, psychology, forensic pathology and climatology will be particularly intrigued by "Dead Reckoning". The book is not for everyone, particularly if the reader has a low tolerance level for the conceiveably gruesome topics of autopsies and blood-splatter analysis. From studies in psychology, the criminal mind has always been of interest to me, and the evidence and psysical analysis leading up to the conviction of those individuals is equally as fascinating. For those who are up to the challenge and have a desire to learn more, the book is mind-absorbing and consumes the reader from start to finish.
In regard to the use of DNA, DNA can often mean the difference between setting one free from incarceration and being absolved of their crimes or, in the case of guilt, being put to death. The information contained on the Jon Benet Ramsey murder case and the death of Princess Diana was of particular interest. The book is not as lengthy as others I have read of a similar nature, but there is a wealth of information contained among the pages. The book has clearly been well researched and documented. "Dead Reckoning" is deserving of a five-star rating and highly recommended reading material if you are up to the subject matter.
