“The Bransons have written an insightful book about the unique issues of ‘cold cases’ and some of the new approaches that have given closure to many friends and family members of victims. . . .These case examples illustrate the rewards and frustrations of re-examining evidence from unsolved cases. It is a must read for every student of forensic investigation and every citizen interested in how forensic and investigative techniques are applied in real cases.”

“The authors of Delayed Justice have done a masterful job of presenting the historical background of ‘cold case’ death investigations, while at the same time offering an insightful presentation of contemporary forensic science and investigative methodology. . . .Delayed Justice is both a good read for the layman interested in this topic and an excellent primer for those in the criminal justice community involved in the investigation and prosecution of cold homicide cases.”
—BLAIR M. GLUBA

of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS)
“Delayed Justice belongs on the bookshelf of every criminal investigator and all those who enjoy reading the true crime genre. The authors have managed to present a fascinating array of ‘cold cases’ while at the same time providing the reader with a step-by-step methodology on how to solve them. It is indeed rare for one book to entertain and educate. Delayed Justice succeeds at both.”
