This multidisciplinary book brings into focus the five different groups involved in rape investigation: the police investigator, the examining nurse, the forensic scientist, the crisis counselor, and the prosecutor. It demonstrates how each must work together for more effective handling of all kinds of sexual assault crimes. Several chapters of this updated bestseller are rewritten by new contributors. New areas of interest include delayed reporting, false rape allegations, elder abuse, and mental retardation.
