Good Stuff!

I read and listen to a lot of these educational texts, most are not that good. This one was wrote very well and the voice here was so easy to listen to. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking to learn more about investigations. I am a seasoned investigator and even though this was meant for more of an entry level crowd, I truly enjoyed it and learned from it as well. Bravo!

Useless for people who aren't from Virginia USA

it's pretty much about the U.S. laws on the subject, interesting, but half of the book is useless if you're from another country.

Bad narrative

Keeps referring to the reader as “her” which I am not. Just irritating to hear over and over
