    I bought this book knowing full well ahead of time that the author, Jim Fraser, is a highly experienced and well renowned expert witness and forensic criminal scientist in the U.K., whilst I am a simple forensic engineer in the U.S., who absolutely loved the way he writes what he thinks unrestrained by popular convention Unabashed, Jim takes on the contemporary aspects of forensic science with glee and, like a masterful medical examiner, performs an Oscar worthy autopsy re painting the forensic science landscape in the process If not for the locked in precedence already established by the Very Short series, this book could have also been titled A Very Condensed Handbook of Forensic Science Here, I am paying homage to the book Handbook of Forensic Science, also authored by Jim Fraser and co authored with Robin Williams a wonderfully written treatise on the subject If forensic science is your passion, only your failure to buy this book, study and understand it, would be the crime.
