Any piece of fiction that helps me see some aspect of life in a new way is a winner in my book. I suppose I was vaguely aware of the "CSI effect," but this story cemented the concept for me. I appreciated the snappy dialogue and the gritty twist in the end. A quick, interesting read that held my attention.

I've been watching shows like SCI for a long time now, but who knew there was such a thing as a "SCI effect?" It's a real thing, the author notes at the end of this story, and the bane of the police and prosecutors. Quick, fun short story. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

I don't read many short stories because I don't generally find them as satisfying as a novel. However, CSI Effect is an engaging story with emotion, good pacing, and characters I could visualize.

Great short story and quick read. I'd really enjoy an actual full book in regards to the CSi Effect that's not a college priced textbook for recreational reading.
