    As the publisher's cover notes on this volume point out, the low dose benzodiazepines and gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB) escape detection in many laboratories because of their low effective doses and rapid metabolism. This is an important shortcoming because of the forensic consequences of the use and misuse of these drugs. Edited by Dr. Salvatore Salamone, the book is a collection of seven papers, any of which would be at home in the pages of this Journal, and it will be a useful addition to the library of any laboratory looking to improve its performance in the areas discussed. Its focus, however, is on a few of the low dose benzodiazepines, (a fact not clear from the title), and includes only a single chapter on GHB.
