The Art and Science of Crime Detection

Crime detection is not a secret art; anybody can do it if he has the wits, and the time, and patience to get all the facts, and if he knows enough of the ways of men and women. [That may have been true in 1927, but not today. The modern detective must possess, among other skills and know-how, knowledge of criminal law, computer navigation, forensic science, criminology, and interview and interrogation techniques. Unfortunately, criminal investigation is becoming a lost art.)

Mary Wilkins Freeman (1852-1930) mystery novelist
