Former homicide task force leader Colin McLaren explains to Eve Ash how too many people are casual about details and need to learn to dig deep, be persistent, open-minded, responsible and challenge where necessary.
Colin refers to his case studies of investigating Princess Diana's death and JFK's assassination, stressing the importance of getting to the source and mastering all the facts.

Get it right first time, follow procedures, maintain your principles and never give up.
