Detective’s Handbook

Detective's Handbook

Illustrator Colin King
Author Anne Civardi, Judy Hindley and Angela Wilkes
Year 1979
Publisher Usborne
ISBN 0 86020 279 8

Detective work is very difficult—but very exciting. A good detective must be patient, watchful and well-trained. He must know how to build the whole story of a crime from tiny clues. Yet he must be ready to spring into action at any time—to outrun and outwit even the craftiest criminal.

That is what this book is all about. It shows you the special skills detectives use, like identifying fingerprints and handwriting, examining witnesses, and reading clues. It tells you what information you need in order to act fast in emergencies.

There are games, puzzles and training courses to help you practice. And there are lots of stories about the kind of tricks crooks play—so that you will be prepared for them when you meet them.

    • Yes, I recall spending a lot of time reading and re-reading this book more than actively ‘detecting’! And I also remember spending as much time simply studying those great illustrations…
