A murder has just been committed. The yellow 'DO NOT CROSS' tape is lifted at the scene of the crime, and you are allowed to step inside. A seasoned detective will take you through a routine investigation and answer all your questions about homicide along the way. For would-be lawyers and arm-chair detectives, A Murder places readers inside the investigation with all its key players--cops, lawyers, scientists, judges, witnesses, juries, and even executioners. Going way beyond what is dramatised on TV shows, Greg Fallis has created a fictionalised murder case (based on a real one) that will both educate and entertain. A Murder answers all your questions about this capital crime: Why are most murders committed? How do the police build a case against a suspect? What determines whether the defendant receives a life sentence or a sentence of death? Who are the people who 'flip the switch'? And much, much more.
