Invaluable resource

With all the concern about homeland security I've been reading a lot on the subject. This is definitely one of the best (and clearest) descriptions of the Patriot Act, and it's helped me understand the complexities of the act and the way it impacts us. The passages describing prior attempted terrorism acts (in New York City), made me realize that 9/11 was one in a series of attempts. I also liked learning more about real police tactics and reading the behind the scenes descriptions of real crimes.

Better than OK

Although this book could have gone more in-depth on certain subjects, I also liked the fact that it covered a lot of ground. Crime scene science, the structure of the NYPD and the use of new technology were especially well documented. It is definitely a must-read for anyone interested in true crime and policing. And if you can't tear yourself away from shows like Forensic Files and other true crime TV series you'll love this book.
