Steve Scarborough “is a Forensic Scientist with over 30 years experience in Law Enforcement with Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (yes, home of CSI) and the FBI.  He has a B.S. degree in Police Science and has testified in court and presented scientific evidence in almost 300 cases.  Steve has given lectures and/or presentations at IAI, SCAFO, NVIAI and other law enforcement conferences on AFIS Workflow & Design, Digital Imaging, Photographic Documentation, the PEPCON (Las Vegas) explosion ,The Daubert Card and Fingerprint Science.”   Steve Scarborough is the author of Scrafitto.

According to the book description of Scrafitto “After fleeing the States, ex-homicide cop Mitch Sharp now has a great life as a commercial photographer in a Costa Rican resort town. He describes his new life in picturesque Quepos with a local saying, pura vida, “this is living.” His comfortable existence in the expatriate art community is shattered when someone begins attacking women and cutting them with a razor-like knife, deliberately splattering their blood on nearby walls. The local police are loath to investigate. The Latin macho society wants to ignore the socially uncomfortable crimes against women. Mitch is also reluctant to help, thinking he left that life behind. When the attacks escalate to murder, and Mitch's new love is targeted by the slasher, he can't avoid being drawn in. Isolated in a foreign country, Mitch must combine an unusual team of ex-pats with his investigative and photography skills to stop the killer from striking again.” 

One reader of Scrafitto said, “Ex-homicide detective Mitch Sharp has relocated to Costa Rica, bringing some anger issues along in his luggage. He hopes he can settle down into a nice quite life as a photographer until someone starts attacking local women and cutting them with a sharp knife or razor. The attacks escalate to murder, and the local authorities aren't equipped to handle these types of crimes. A new love interest may be the next victim, so a reluctant Mitch pitches in and uses his experience to try to track down the killer. Author Steve Scarborough is a retired Forensic Scientist, so when his character begins to add things up, you can take it to the bank. He knows what he's talking about. This was a good story with a variety of interesting characters, and I'll be looking for more from Steve Scarborough.”
