*Binding Ties* is slightly different than the other books and episodes in the series. This particular book only deals with one case, instead of the usual 2 or 3 at a time.
After a 10-year hiatus, a serial killer is back in action. Or is he? Is there a copycat out there? The CSI team and Captain Brass are determined to find the truth by following the evidence. For Brass, this is personal because this was one of his first cases and it went unsolved.
The whole plot reminded me of the Zodiac Killer, a Californian serial killer in the 60's, whom the police were never able to capture. Then, one day, the Zodiac Killer just simply disappeared.
I found this story plot to be predictable, especially when you only have a small group of people who knew the real contents of the serial killer's killing signature. Just round them up and play the "20 Questions" game. But no, you'll be taken on the long-winded investigation. In fact, don't be surprised if you figured out who's the killer by the half-way mark....more
Uh, no. I just could not finish this book. It was a boring read.
There's a heavy and continuous downpour in NYC and there are three crimes that the CSI team need process and solve.
Mac and Don uncover a string of carved victims. Slowly, they realize that they all lead to a man. So, it's a race against time to prevent additional murders from happening.
Lindsay and Danny are investigating the death of a teacher, who is supposed to be loved by the students. Apparently, someone didn't.
Stella and Sheldon investigate a bomb site and a murder at a pub. However, in the midst of their investigation, the pub shakes and crumble, trapping Sheldon and a suspect. It's also a race against time to save the people before the building collapse.
So, there's no real teamwork as they're all split up on three cases. And worse, it's a dry dry dry read. ...more

*Dead of Winter* was the most boring CSI book for me...so far. I have enjoyed reading the other books (CSI and CSI:Miami). This is the first that I've read of CSI:NY and just did not enjoy it at all. Maybe it was just the topics involved: an author suspected of killing a fellow tenant and a witness in protective custody killed. ...more

*Double Dealer: CSI* was a fast-paced mystery that left you guessing who did these crimes. *Double Dealer* is an easy read that doesn't dwell forever on the technical aspects or jargon of forensic investigation.
A mummified body has been found at an abandoned building that used to be a casino. There are 2 bullet entries at the back of his head. Fingers are missing. This body had disappeared 15 years ago.
Another body has been found at a casino. 2 bullet entries are found at the back of his head.
Are the CSI dealing with a serial killer? The team seems to think so. However, Grissom, with his Vulcan-like mind and approach, tells the team to follow the evidence and leave out their feelings. The CSI finds more DNA than suspects. So, just how many people are involved?!?!
Meanwhile, the FBI are sniffing around for information. Just what exactly are their involvement with the case(s)?
Like I said, it's an easy read that will grip your attention to the end. ...more

*CSI: Cold Burn* was an easy reading that didn't dwell too much on forensic jargon and processes. There were processes but they were simplified so that readers can still feel connected to the stories.
Gil and Sara have flown to New York for a forensic conference. However, just as soon as they landed, a blizzard is just now starting. They make it to the hotel. Restless, Sara and Gil take a short walk around the hotel. However, their stroll is interrupted when they discovered a murdered and burnt body.
With the conference cancelled, due to the non-stop blizzard, Sara and Gil preserve evidence surrounding the burnt body with haste. They also have to improvise to make their own homemade forensic lab.
Meanwhile, back in Las Vegas, a woman has been found, dead, at a park near Lake Mead. Catherine and the gang have found the crime scene to be odd. Apparently, the woman had been frozen and then wetted down before being dumped. The forensic team discovered that this particular woman had been missing for a year.
Both were good stories. I think I liked the one with Gil and Sara. With the help of a Canadian forensic specialist, it felt like they were playing Clue. You know, so-and-so killed and burned this guy with this weapon in this room. Of course, everyone had a different theory.
Like I said, *CSI:Cold Burn* was an easy and enjoyable read. ...more
