Good texts on fingerprint methods are rare, and this volume, a collaboration between pairs of noted Swiss and Australian researchers, promised to be a welcomed addition. The book attempts to provide a survey of fingerprint detection methods combined with a discussion of examination philosophy, but the result is two books in one without the benefit of a much needed transition to make the two diverse aspects of latent print examination truly cohesive.
