Step past the flashing lights into the true scene of the crime with this frank, unflinching, and unforgettable account of life as a crime scene investigator. Whether explaining rigor mortis or the art of fingerprinting a stiff corpse on the side of the road, Dana Kollmann details her true, unvarnished experiences as a CSI for the Baltimore County Police Department.

Unlike the popular crime dramas proliferating on today’s television networks, these forensic tales forgo glitz for grit to show what really goes on. Kollmann recounts stories that the cops and the CSI’s usually leave in the field, bringing the sights, smells and sounds of a crime scene alive as never before.
 
Unveiling the process and science of crime scene investigation in all its can’t-tear-your-eyes-away fascination, Never Suck a Dead Man’s Hand takes you into the strange world behind the yellow tape, offering a truly eye-opening perspective on the day-to-day life of a CSI.

Story Locale: Baltimore, MD, and foreign locations where the author has done investigations.

From the explosion in popularity of true crime podcasts, to the many armchair investigators spawned by the internet, to the increase in crime shows on television, the public’s fascination with the work of crime scene investigation continues to grow.

Never Suck a Dead Man’s Hand is being repackaged and reissued for the first time since its original release in 2007.

Since the book’s original publication, Dana Kollmann’s status in the SCI and criminology world has only grown. She is now Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice at Towson University in Towson, MD.

Includes 16 pages pf color photos.

Dana Kollmann has eleven years of experience working in a crime lab with the Arlington County (Virginia) and Baltimore County (Maryland) police departments. She has handled thousands of crime scenes, hundreds of death scenes, a multitude of homicide scenes, has testified in court on dozens of occasions, and has appeared as an extra on Homicide. She holds a bachelor of science degree in anthropology from Towson State University, a master’s in forensic science from George Washington University, and a doctorate in anthropology from American University. She teaches graduate and undergraduate forensics, criminal justice, and anthropology courses at Towson University in Baltimore.
