Keep in mind the intended audience for this book. It is essentially a dictionary of forensic terms with light-weight coverage of the technical details. There are many instances of cut-and-paste text, over-simplification and several outright technical errors. However, as an assistance to watching CSI shows on TV it does help to decode some of the jargon. A reasonable start if you are writing a mystery novel.
