Reviews

"As a Forensic Scientist working in the area of sexual assaults, I feel that this book is very relevant for law enforcements agencies investigating sexual offences and for those studying in the area of Forensic Science and Criminal Justice. Of course it would also be useful as a source of reference material for experience practitioners."
