A Review of “Crime Scene”
This paperback book is described in the introduction as “an encyclopedia of forensic science information.” It is directed to the “interested layman” and “also for the police officers and attorneys 9 and crime writers.” It has 23 photographs and several drawings. The author, Larry Ragle, is the former Director of Forensic Science Services for the Orange County Sheriff-Coroner Department in California, a long-time Academy fellow, and, as the book jacket reminds us, he lent his expertise to the O. J. Simpson defense team. I have had the pleasure of knowing him for the last 22 years.
