Amazon Review
In the pantheon of yank crime writing giants, it'd be argued that James Lee Burke reigns superb. Elmore Leonard's place is, after all, safe, yet terrific although his books are, they don't have the ambition and sheer heft of Burke. And the guy who used to be maybe Burke’s nearest rival, James Ellroy, is far much less constant (even the writer now admits that his final e-book, the infuriatingly written The chilly Six Thousand, used to be a misfire). We've been avidly eating Burke's vibrant and sprawling photos of yankee society (and its miscreants) a minimum of way back to Lay Down My Sword and protect in 1971, and -- intriguingly -- Burke's new e-book, Rain Gods, travels again to that previous quantity and plucks out a personality to be centre level within the new ebook: he's the cousin of Burke's loved protagonist Billy Bob Holland. Hackberry Holland is the sheriff of a small Texas city, and he's fairly probably the most idiomatic (and totally rounded) characters that the writer has created (some British readers may well locate his moniker irresistibly comedian, however the slightest acquaintance with the e-book will quickly get them prior that).

Holland comes around the our bodies of 9 Thai girls who've been cursorily interred in shallow graves close to a church. those murdered prostitutes, Holland is familiar with, are the end of an iceberg, and characterize the best expert problem he has ever confronted. And the distinctive map of corruption and intimidation that he comes up opposed to stretches from a felony in New Orleans (for whom the main severe violence is quotidian) to a stricken veteran of the Iraq battle suffering from his personal demons (as is Holland himself --- he's, in spite of everything, a James Lee Burke protagonist). yet through a long way the main sinister of his competitors is an murderer who lives via the tenets of the Bible, and is going via the soubriquet The Preacher.

Admirers of Burke (and they're legion) are likely to forget about stories and easily purchase each one new ebook. First-time purchasers, notwithstanding, may still observe that this is often the writer on kinetic shape, offering the entire components that he's celebrated for with pungency and panache. there's even an advantage should you are proof against the marginally proselytising non secular pressure in Burke's paintings: his malevolent bible-quoting villain right here firmly places paid to the concept that Burke is subtly performing some PR paintings for the Catholic Church. this can be the good James Lee Burke on whatever like classic shape. --Barry Forshaw --This textual content refers to an out of print or unavailable variation of this title.

Sample text

As a result, the reconstruction of a crime scene is constantly evolving as more evidence is uncovered. The investigator continually tests the developing crime theory against the evidence and avoids making any assumptions, no matter how logical they may seem. An investigator may logically believe that a piece of evidence ended up where it did because of a suspect’s actions, but if the hard evidence doesn’t support this belief, the theory must be held suspect.  Chapter 3: Collecting and Protecting the Evidence If a gun is found just outside the rear door of a house where a homicide took place, logic suggests that the assailant dropped the gun while escaping.

If there is, the suspect must be guilty, and if not, he must be innocent. The facts are that DNA analysis is only relevant in a very small percentage of cases, perhaps as low as 5 percent. Most crimes are solved by good police work, not the crime lab. This attitude naturally enters the courtroom where jurors are asking the same question: Why is there no DNA? Did the police do something wrong by not collecting it? Is there no DNA because the defendant is innocent? You can see how this complicates the job of prosecutors and defense attorneys.

Unbeknownst to them, the shipment was a setup orchestrated by Capone in an attempt to kill his chief rival, Bugs Moran. Moran was supposed to be at the warehouse, but he arrived late.
