Our book is entirely in the hands of our publisher, Syngress. The release date is November 22, 2013.
“Cyber-crime, internet fraud, online predators…we think they’re being addressed until we become the victims. Today’s law enforcement is ill-prepared to address against national security, let alone against our law-abiding citizens. Todd Shipley and Art Bowker are able to communicate what law enforcement responders need to know before they get the call – the information in this book must become a mandatory reference for law enforcement agencies everywhere.”
Jim Deal, United States Secret Service (Ret.) and original Supervisor of the San Francisco USSS Electronic Crimes Task Force
“At last….. Informed, pragmatic guidance from two highly experienced professionals who have actually spent time on the front line, not just the classroom. This book is relevant for practitioners working in both law enforcement and within business – every aspiring cyber investigator should have a copy.”
Neal Ysart, Director First August Ltd, Information and Corporate Risk Services
Our book is due out shortly. Both Todd and I are very pleased with how our collaborative efforts turned out. But what do others say about it? Well, we got the okay to share some of the reviewer’s comments. We will be posting them here shortly. Clearly based upon their unbiased observations our book will be on every investigator’s wish list for the coming year!
Todd and I were burning the midnight oil last night and finished our review of the pages proofs. Our book is now back in the hands of our publisher. We are very pleased with it and think it will be a very useful resource for online investigators.
I wrote a guest blog at Elsevier’s SciTechConnect Blog called, Policing the Silk Road: Is Law Enforcement Ready? Todd and I stress that law enforcement can and should work these cases. This case shows even criminals using Tor make mistakes.
