A Troubleshooter's Guide to Murder
« on: October 11, 2009, 11:08:40 PM »

For Lee or Jim (or any interested party):  a book idea

Title:  A Troubleshooter's Guide to Murder, a step-by-step problem-solving approach to homicide investigation

I work in tech support and write/critique many troubleshooting guides, but I don't know enough about criminal investigation, I think, to write one for murder.  I would rather like to read one.  I'd be happy to beta read or offer ideas if one of you would write it.

Doc,

Not a bad idea.  However, despite constant and persistent efforts, I'm just a beat cop.  Lee's the detective.

I'm also just a beat cop.  (OK, on loan to Narcotics, but I still work the streets.)

However, from what I've seen from my friends in the Homicide Division, while there are some procedures you follow every time - especially when the case is starting out, cases have a tendency to splinter out into all kinds of different directions based on the info you gather.

It would still be a very interesting book, though. 

I agree with Jim, Lee's the guy to answer this one.
