Description: "Neil Barrett is one of the UK's leading experts on computer crime" says the blurb. In this book, Mr Barrett takes the readers through a number of different cases he has been involved with, explaining the issues involved and what happened in each case. These range from child pornography to computer hacking (in the popular sense) and computer use in non-computer crimes.

The book is written for the non-technical reader. This meant that I spent a fair amount of time thinking "that's not quite right" before realising that if I was explaining it to a non-techie I might simplify in a similar way.

You won't see much in the way of hard technical information - almost nothing in fact. What you will gain is an insight into the challenges facing computer forensic experts, the police, the courts, the victims and crime and maybe the criminals too. Many of the problems are more to do with maintaining the trail of evidence and getting the jury to understand the issues, rather than deep technical stuff.

I found Traces of Guilt an easy and interesting read.
