"This book is addressed to the primary stakeholders including police, medical professionals, lawyers, and forensic scientists...The reader will find this book worthwhile...a good overview of the many important considerations that are required to conduct comprehensive investigations, through forensic analyses and successful prosecutions." -Philip M.

This reference will be of interest to anyone who encounters drug-facilitated crimes. The forensic toxicology is very detailed...I am not aware of any other book that addresses the topic of drug-facilitated crimes comprehensively.
