From the Paper:"The book gives a thorough account of the murder and investigation. Thomas develops the argument from the outset and presents it clearly in the book with examples of the effective techniques of the investigation and how to approach a complex case like JonBenet's. According to him investigations must be carried out before evidence are mishandled or removed as in the case of JonBenet. A delay in investigation often tends to mislead investigative directions, creates difficulty in gathering evidence and creates a loss in the credibility of the testimonies. For example in the JonBenet case, the lack of cooperation on part of John and Patsy Ramsey, the parents of the murdered child compounded the difficulties. The police began treating the parents as the primary suspects."
