Written by two men who've done the job for years, and investigated fires of all types. Their no-nonsense writing style makes you slosh through the puddles and smell the acrid smoke with them. Their first-hand knowledge is easy for the beginning investigator to absorb. No big words or fancy terms. Great photos and good writing.

This new updated edition provides fire investigators with a better understanding of fire dynamics.

Important information on violations and laws, scientific investigation, arson-timing devices, and on-the-scene photographs are included. The authors stress the importance of gathering all available data: from evidence collection to tracking down the arsonists. The temperature tables are a definite plus for the fire investigator. The new and proven information contained in this text will be useful and practical for fire investigators, police officers, insurance adjusters, and attorneys.
