Table of contents
Gold's computer, they both are willing to do whatever it takes to find the person who would buy such filth. All of the evidence points to one man in the office, even though the computer forensics show that his computer was not used to print the photos, but Catherine's gut tells her that the obvious suspect is not the one who did this - but who did?
They discover the body of an unknown woman, called in by a good Samaritan. The body was carefully wrapped and duct taped, but when they open up the package, they recognize the face of Candace Lewis, the Las Vegas mayor's personal assistant who disappeared a few weeks past. Grissom is forced to put aside his distaste of politics and deal with the mayor's relationship with Candace and the sheriff's political aspirations.
With so much pressure coming from outside sources to solve the case and keep the details under wraps, Grissom is forced to walk on eggshells and use careful maneuvering in his investigation or ruin the wrong person's career This is the fourth book in the CSI series by Max Collins and, while it was not as entertaining as the first three, it was still a very enjoyable read. The endings of the mysteries were particularly interesting in that it reminds us that sometimes the simplest and most obvious solution is the correct solution, instead of the convoluted and complex hypotheses that investigators come up with while working on cases.

Again, Collins does a superb job of keeping the TV personalities consistent and clear - I always feel like I am watching an episode on TV when I read his books, I just get more detail this way! I've always enjoyed forensic mystery stories, but in retrospect I really prefer those tales where the medical examiner is 1 brilliant, and 2 an interesting character. Quincy was my first brush with the genre, Kate Scarpetta before she started to have regular emotional breakdowns, and, lately, Temperence Brennan.
These are characters alive with emotion as well as skill with a knife. The characters in the CSI stories fall short if you are looking for books that are as much about them as they are about the dissection of a crime. It's something like reading a script that gives you no hint of the feeling behind what the character is saying.
If the puzzle drags for even a moment, you suddenly realize that there isn't much meat to the story. And if you can guess the answer you start wondering if you should just peek to see it you're right and go on to another book. Such is the case here where once of the tales is about murder by misdirection, and the other is a grim tale that combines politics and the worst kind of murder. The stories are interesting, but having now read a few of Collins books, the plots are guessable because the author likes to drop little hints.
And there is negligible emotional involvement perhaps as much as a good crossword puzzle. The book is decent light reading but you may find yourself wanting more.
Since I'm not a die-hard fan of the show, I had a little trouble matching character names in the book with their image from my memories. This was a little distracting for me, but shouldn't be a problem for those who pay more attention to the TV show. Reading this story seemed much like reading a fleshed-out script for a show's episode As per the show, there are two cases in focus. First is the discovery of child pornograpy printouts at an advertising agency. Second is the discovery of the body of Las Vegas' Mayor's secretary who had been kidnapped several weeks earlier. I think the book spent more time with the first case, with just tidbits of the second case thrown in until the end.
Once the child porn case is wrapped up, the book shifts the murder case into high gear and ends rather suddenly. One thread through both cases is that an innocent person is actively framed by the perpetrator. Because of the heavy sexual content of these cases, I wouldn't recommend this book for younger readers. I havent yet read any other books from this series, but I will be picking them up soon. See all 14 reviews.

Jan 29, Elena rated it liked it Shelves: First of all, I don't think that the characters were very in character. They could have been anybody. Also, the cases are quite fast, with a few predictable red herrings. While guessing who is guilty is not too easy, guessing who is innocent is not that difficult.
The solving of both cases is very similar, even though the crimes are very different. It can be enjoyed and perfectly understood by anybody who has never watched the show, because any personal information about the characters that's relevant to understand their actions is explained. I don't know if it's supposed to take place at any specific point in the series, but there isn't any indication of were, just that it's after the first half of season two because of some information about Nick. Since I'm such a big fan of the show, I decided to try one of the novelizations. I got caught up in the story easily enough, and even finished the book quickly a matter of one evening.
Character-development doesn't seem to be a big thing in these serial novelizations; nor, in fact, does a believable plot. And this Since I'm such a big fan of the show, I decided to try one of the novelizations. And this book could have used some editing, as there are a LOT of grammatical errors that took away from my enjoyment of the story throughout the entire book. I enjoyed this one enough that I'm now reading a second, so I guess the author did his job!
Nov 18, David rated it it was ok. Collins managed to capture the flavor of the CSI television show especially the early years. And this time he manages to put together two pretty decent mystery tales. So the book reads pretty much like an episode of CSI. And while I enjoyed it to some extent I was put off by the quick conclusions that were reached. And also by the fact that both of the conclusions were similar in nature even though regarding two completely different crimes.
We still see some of the flaws inherent in the CSI Mr. We still see some of the flaws inherent in the CSI series, meaning CSI agents actually doing investigative work by questioning suspects etc. We also still have the idea that DNA results come back overnight. Aug 25, Maura rated it really liked it Shelves: I was addicted to CSI and when summer hit and I was out of episodes to watch, I headed straight for these books. And usually, I like to read books involving TV shows and movies so I can get an insight into the characters minds - monologues and such.
I will admit that the characters were somewhat out of character from their TV counterparts, but that's also not too unusual. This book is set up sort of like a CSI episode where the team gets split up to work multiple cases and throughout the cases t I was addicted to CSI and when summer hit and I was out of episodes to watch, I headed straight for these books. This book is set up sort of like a CSI episode where the team gets split up to work multiple cases and throughout the cases they'll occasionally meet up to debrief or mention in passing what they've found.
It's all very good and suspenseful, just like a CSI episode. I really enjoyed reading this as it definitely fulfilled my CSI cravings! Op een maandagochtend vindt een kantoormedewerker shockerende foto's die achtergelaten zijn in een printer.
Ze tonen taferelen die wijzen op verschrikkelijke misdaden. Met behulp van forensische computerexperts ziet het CSI-team zich voor de taak gesteld om door middel van een eindeloze hoeveelheid hard- en software de daders op te sporen. Gewoon een standaard verhaal, een moord en team die het oplost.
Drie sterren omdat het niet boven de gebaande paden uitkomt. Standaard omdat het voorspelbaar is. Een simpel tussen de zwaardere boeken door boek. Om zo even te lezen. Het neemt niet weg dat het wel lekker leest. X Pagina's; Paperback Crime Scene Investigation is my favourite, so when I realised there were accompanying books I leapt at the chance.
Crime Scene Investigation
Collins knows what the characters are like and how they speak. It's evident he's researched the show. It was great reading new stories about some of my favourite characters. Overall, they're a good, easy read that require practically no imagination because you already know the people and their history.

Oct 12, Karschtl rated it really liked it Shelves: This book does not present you with a case that you already know from one of the CSI-Episodes, but it's a completely new plot. And I found I quite interesting that I learned something about the character's past Nick in particular that I didn't know already from watching countless of episodes on TV. The two cases that the two teams are working on simultaneously are quite interesting, and I learned a new golden rule in crime investigation: Aug 02, Shirley rated it it was amazing.
Reading the book was even more enjoyable than watching an episode of the series. The novel was published in so the main characters are Gil Grissom and Catherine Willows. If you are familiar with the series, you may imagine that you are hearing the voices of the cast while you are reading. I'm looking forward to reading more books from this series. Nov 24, Stacy rated it liked it Shelves: This was an ok book. It's always fun to read about Grissom and Warrick, and now Catherine - characters no long on the tv show. But, the stories were just ok. These could easily have been episodes - nothing really special or unique about them.
So, the book was an easy and quick read, but didn't stand out in any way. Oct 05, Vikky rated it liked it.
It was a good read, but the characters didn't quite seem to be who they are on TV, especially Grissom, but I guess we build up a picture of characters in our own minds and when someone else "writes" them it isn't the same - I'm having the same problem with reading Game of Thrones after watching the TV series. I have just started another CSI book though so they can't be that bad! Nov 04, Fredrick Danysh rated it really liked it. Monday morning a dump of kiddie porn is reported to the Las Vegas police and the CSI jump on the case. A call is also received regrinding a body dump.
The body turns out to be the mayor's missing secretary. The sheriff recluses himself due to his projected candidacy for the major's office at Grissom's suggestion.
