Summary

Summary

Arson is America's fastest-growing crime. This book will serve as a valuable tool in bringing these faceless criminals to justice. It's all here: the initial procedures at the scene; interviewing checklists for fire fighters, witnesses, owners and occupants; ferreting out telltale insurance and financial "red flags" that indicate arson-for-profit; exhaustive sources of information culled from city, county, state and federal records; and more.
