For criminal investigators, police officers, and academics, Rossmo (criminology, Texas State U.), a former geographic profiler, assembles 16 chapters that outline the causes and problems involved in failed investigations and how to avoid them, with a focus on murder and other major crimes. Chapters describe cognitive biases, such as tunnel vision, that lead to mistakes in reasoning; organizational traps like groupthink, rumors, and ego; and probability errors in forensic science and criminal profiling, such as the prosecutor's fallacy. Studies of specific cases and recommendations for improvements are included. Contributors are investigators, criminologists, attorneys, psychologists, academics, and others from the US, Canada, and the UK. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
