World-renowned forensic scientist, author, and educator Dr. Richard Saferstein once again brings together a contributor list that is a veritable Who's Who of the top practicing forensic scientists in the field. This Third Edition, he is joined by the Director of the Core Mass Spectrometry Facility at the Barnett Institute of Chemical and Biological Analysis at Northeastern University, co-editor Dr. Adam Hall.
