A comprehensive introduction to criminal procedure, from the point where individuals first come into contact with the police, all the way through to appeal. Traditional criminal procedure topics, including search and seizure as well as interrogation and identification procedures comprise the first half of the text. Recognizing that criminal procedure consists of much more than interactions between the police and criminal suspects, Worrall goes on to discuss the pretrial process; the roles of defense attorneys, prosecutors, and grand juries; plea bargaining and guilty pleas; rights of criminal defendants at trial; and appeals and habeas corpus. The material focuses on the constitutional rights of criminal suspects, as interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court. Reviewers are praising Worrall as an exciting new entry to the market. "The book does an excellent job of covering the material," writes one reviewer. "It covers areas rarely covered in a typical procedure text such as issues of mental competency. In addition, it answers the questions that professors consistently get from their students."

Another reviewer calls the Worrall text "an incredible improvement over [other criminal procedure texts]...where those books are so confusing and choppy, this book is well written and gets the points across clearly."
