This is what one professor had to say about Criminalistics,
“I am not an expert in this field, however as a digital forensics specialist, I need to have the knowledge of forensic science and [Criminalistics: Forensic Science, Crime, and Terrorism] has helped me to achieve that. I would like to thank the author for this great book and the way he made it simple for any reader to understand. I found it fascinating and I will recommend this book to anyone who is interested in forensic science.”
