Seit Jims ungeklärtem Tod hat Bee keinen ihrer Freunde mehr gesprochen. Als sich die fünf ein Jahr später in einem noblen Wochenendhaus an der Küste wiedertreffen, entgehen sie nachts nur knapp einem Autounfall. Unter Schock und vom Regen durchnässt kehren sie ins Haus zurück. Doch dann klopft ein geheimnisvoller Unbekannter an die Tür und eröffnet ihnen das Unfassbare: Der Unfall ist wirklich passiert und es gibt nur einen Überlebenden. Die Freunde sind in einer Zeitschleife zwischen Tod und Leben gefangen, in der sie dieselben elf Stunden immer wieder durchlaufen – bis sie sich geeinigt haben, wer von ihnen überlebt. Der Schlüssel zur Entscheidung scheint Jims Tod zu sein – in ihrer Verzweiflung beginnen die Freunde nachzuforschen, was wirklich mit ihm passiert ist, in jener Nacht, in der er in den Steinbruch stürzte. Und langsam wird klar, dass sie alle etwas zu verbergen haben … Ein echter Page-Turner, der einen nicht mehr loslässt!

This specially developed workbook can be used in conjunction with the Complete Crime Scene Investigation Handbook (ISBN: 978-1-4987-0144-0) in group training environments, or for individuals looking for independent, step-by-step self-study guide. It presents an abridged version of the Handbook, supplying both students and professionals with the most critical points and extensive hands-on exercises for skill enhancement. Filled with more than 350 full-color images, the Complete Crime Scene Investigation Workbook walks readers through self-tests and exercises they can perform to practice and improve their documentation, collection, and processing techniques. Most experienced crime scene investigators will tell you that it is virtually impossible to be an expert in every aspect of crime scene investigations. If you begin to "specialize" too soon, you risk not becoming a well-rounded crime scene investigator. Establishing a complete foundation to the topic, the exercises in this workbook reinforce the concepts presented in the Handbook with a practical, real-world application. As a crime scene investigator, reports need to be more descriptive than they are at the patrol officer level. This workbook provides a range of scenarios around which to coordinate multiple exercises and lab examples, and space is provided to write descriptions of observations. The book also supplies step-by-step, fully illustrative photographs of crime scene procedures, protocols, and evidence collection and testing techniques. This lab exercise workbook is ideal for use in conjunction with the Handbook, both in group training settings, as well as a stand-alone workbook for individuals looking for hands-on self-study. It is a must-have resource for crime scene technicians, investigators, and professionals who want a complete manual of crime scene collection and processing techniques.

Numerous new or revised problems are drawn from actual engineering practice. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in these exercises which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Excellent new examples and case studies span all areas of engineering giving students a broad exposure to various fields in engineering.McGraw-Hill Education's Connect is also available as an optional add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need when they need it how they need it so that class time is more effective.

This text is intended for all those involved in the investigation of sexual assault crimes and to educate them as to how drugs are used as weapons in committing sexual assaults. Designed as a handbook for all those involved in the investigation and prosecution of drug-assisted sexual assaults, this handbook begins with the history of drug-facilitated crimes and provides an overview of how these crimes have changed over the last decade. The last decade witnessed a dramatic increase in reports about sexual assault victims being knocked out through the use of drugs. The handbook continues with the many challenges that face the investigator of drug-facilitated sexual assault (DFSA). These challenges include: (1) an awareness of the many drugs used to commit DFSA such as ethanol and rohypnol, their effects on the human body, and their pharmacokinetic properties; (2) understanding and acknowledging the complexities of reporting this type of crime; and (3) properly collecting and analyzing the physical evidence. A key element making DFSA difficult to investigate is the drugs used, their effects on the victim, and the difficulty in detecting the presence of the drugs after ingestion. The handbook concludes by providing an outline of ideas and suggestions to overcome the difficulties encountered in DFSA cases.
