This is an auction for MOTIVE TO MURDER: HOW POLICE TAKE HOMICIDE FROM CASE TO COURT by Martin Edwards.

"What issues challenge a murder investigation team? You will find out what happens at the scene of a crime, how police compile an evidence file, the role of the coroner and key questions in witness interviews."

Amazon.com review:

"This is one of the most fascinating books that I've come across in over a year as a budding writer researching homicide. There are colour photographs on almost every page and some fascinating information, including tips on what police do before, during and after a crime. The highlight is the description of major homicides and the murderers involved. The author even reviews the Southside Strangler case in Richmond, Virginia, which was covered nationally, but died down in the media once Timothy Spencer was caught. I was living in the city at the time, and like every other female there was absolutely terrified. Then later I found out that I had been in the house next door to one of his victims--talk about getting the creeps reading about that evil man again, even 16 years later. But, the author had all the facts correct as I remember them, so I believe that the facts he compiled on the other homicides were as correct as one could get in his research. Definitely a great book to put on your bookshelf if you are a crime 'novice' studying homicide or a writer preparing to learn a little about the industry itself. The profiles spread throughout the book illustrating the points he was teaching were definitely an ingenious way of putting a learning tool together."
