by Gary A. Dias
paperback, 6" x 9"
Retired homicide lieutenant Gary A. Dias and reporter Robbie Dingeman provide inside information about some of Oahu's most disturbing crimes. In describing the circumstances surrounding domestic violence, sex crimes, serial killings, arson, child abductions, hostage taking and other crimes, Dias and Dingeman honor the victims and their families as they describe the responsibilities of the police, the courts, and the media in investigating and reporting these crimes.
"The husband-and-wife team delivers fresh insights and informed commentary about cases that have been continually, but incompletely, analyzed and discussed in the community... Dingeman uses her reportorial skills to construct moving but objective accounts of the devastating fallout of violent crimes, with particular attention to victims and their families, while Dias' sections emphasize the pressures and responsibilities police face when investigating a crime, and the complexity of securing evidence that can lead to a conviction."
