Lieutenant Horatio Caine leads a crack team of forensic scientists who investigate crimes amid the tropical surroundings and cultural crossroads of Miami. Together, they collect and analyze the evidence to expose the truth and to bring justice to those who often cannot speak for themselves: the victims.
Thomas Lessor left Las Vegas for Miami to get away from it all -- in fact, he felt certain he was going to get away with murder. But he was wrong, and the Las Vegas PD soon contacted Miami with a warrant for his arrest.
Hot on his trail, the Miami CSIs are called to the scene of his abandoned car...a car that's been abandoned in spirit but not in body. And on a pleasant and secluded Miami beach, a young couple is about to make a gruesome discovery....
Not the best of Max's CSI books, but still good, August 15, 2003 Reviewer: David Scott from Spokane, WA USA I have read all of Max Allan Collins CSI books and enjoyed each and every one. This book was no exception; he got the mannerisms of the characters and their speech patterns perfect. In the other CSI books all the characters seem to get equal page time, while in this one Horiatio takes center stage and the other characters only touched upon in passing, so there isn't really any room for the other characters to get the personality that they deserve. Hopefully the other characters will have more room to grow in future books. The only problem I have with the book is it tends to be a little more long winded than the other CSI books. While most of the other CSI books read like a regular episode, this one felt like a two hour epic. None the less it's a well thought out and planned book. The end is a little disappointing, it all most seemed like Max finally realized how long the book was getting and needed to find a quick way to end it, but it's worth a read anyway.
