The Wichita Police Department has never had a digitized fingerprint enlarge on a big screen and instantly match with the mug shot of a suspect, Merz noted. Arrests were far more likely to come from examination of a scene, logical deduction and personal interviews. When a rare quality fingerprint could be found, it was fed to an FBI database, which spat out 10 possible suspects.

Bunny Suits of Death: Tales of a Csi - AbeBooks - Laura A. Merz: X
Unfortunately, Merz and her literary agent withstood "years of rejections" and ultimately went the independent publishing route. This is a real shame, because there is potential for an extraordinary book here, if it had gotten into the hands of the right editor. There are moments when the melodrama gets to be a bit much, and the book ends too quickly - I got the sense that the events Merz was describing in the final chapters were too painful for her to really explore, though it would have been to the benefit of the story.
Despite these flaws, the book is excellent overall and eminently readable. And did I mention that it was funny? One chapter in particular, "The Heat of the Night," actually had me laughing so hard that I was crying. It involves the robbery of a religious woman who feels the need to explain the sex toys in her house to CSI Merz. Enough said. While many books have been written explaining how CSI work is nothing like what they show on television, there is something so charming about the way Merz tells her story that it feels original.
Highly recommended. Pick up a copy on Amazon , or, if you know me in real life, ask to borrow my copy.
Disclosure: Laura Merz was a theater student of mine in the late s. Feb 22, Gretchen rated it really liked it.
Very much enjoyed this collection of tales by a friend's sister about real CSI work, just as CSI became the stuff of pop culture. Glad I was often reading while alone, because my gasps, groans and guffaws might have alarmed others. Not sure I will ever get over "gloving," and I will never look at a dachshund the same way again.
