OT: yugoslav sibilants

Can anyone here help me with the phonetic values of serbo-croat sibilants?  My
books only give English-language approximations (useless) and I cant really find
anything that helps what I hear from my Bosnian coworkers:

     I think I hear   SAMPA says    books imply
    s    /C/            /s/            /s/
   "s    /S/(or /C/?)   /S/            /S/
    c    /cC/           /ts/           /ts/
   "c    /tS/           /tS/           /tS/
   'c    /ts/           /tS'/          /cC/

I am pretty sure they dont map to the English points of articulation, but cant
tell at all where they go.
