Summary
Procedural and technical inaccuracies can ruin an otherwise effective crime novel, especially given the public's ever-increasing interest in forensic details. In this guide, readers delve into the world of murder to learn how and why people commit homicide and how detectives capture the deadly perpetrators. With a mix of text, case studies and photographs, author and criminal lawyer Martin Edwards explores this intriguing subject step-by-step, empowering writers to create engaging and believable scenarios. The book is organized into five sections, corresponding to the process of committing murder and solving it. In addition to photographs of true crime cases, the book features more than 25 profiles of recent murderers. Readers will also find a glossary of definitions of important elements in murder cases, along with slang used by homicide detectives.--From publisher description
