Encyclopedia of Underwater Investigations
By: Robert Teather, Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
This is a specialist book directed at police officers, the military, insurance investigators and anyone concerned with search and rescue. To the layman the photographs may have a morbid fascination but this is not a book for the casual diver - although it does give a detailed explanation as to what to expect and what to do in the case of marine deaths. Chapters such as Drowning - What Really Happens; Body Recovery; Scuba Fatality - Accident Investigation - are important knowledge for the dive leader but the remaining information is the prerogative of the qualified investigator: Investigation of Death; Recovery of Skeletal Remains; Firearms, Aircraft, Vehicle Recovery; Court testimony, Collection and Types of Evidence. A valuable book for the professional.
