The story alternates between two cases. First, there's the disappearance of Lynn Pierce, seemingly a devout Christian and devoted wife and mother, but who has left behind a recording of her husband threatening to kill her. Then, there's the case of a stripper strangled to death in a back room of the club where she worked - where, coincidentally, Catherine Willows used to dance. Both stories are fascinating and twisty - and the culprits aren't that easy to guess. Collins also uses all the CSI characters well, and believably.

One of the better CSI novel tie-ins, this one really captures the essence of the show, most of all with its portrayal of Catherine Willows.

Love the show, but loved the books even more since they are able to go into way more detail than the show could ever try to do in a one hour time slot!!!!

I'm a huge CSI fan and a bit Max Allan Collins fan and I think this book is as close as you can come to the "look and feel" of the series off film. That said, it took me far too long to read it and I just didn't feel captivated by it or interested in the cases. The plot was solid and the "CSI side" was well done, but I found it easy to put down which was a bit disappointing.

This book feels just like the TV show, you feel as if you are right there with the characters, on the scene trying to prove your case. Excellent reading!

I love these CSI books. This one involves a missing woman whose husband threatened to cut her into little pieces and a stripper murdered in the club where she works.

Good continuation of this marvelous show. A little more indepth with each character. Good story with the requisite twists and turns!

SIN CITY is another pretty good CSI read, with dual plot lines. A religious housewife is missing, and Grissom and Brass are pretty sure her husband is behind her mysterious disappearance. At the same time, Catherine and Sara are working on the strangulation murder of an exotic dancer in the stripclub where she worked.

An overall decent and quick read.

Good reading. Characters are written as they are protrayed on the tv show

A fun read -- I'd never noticed that Gil Grissom always wears black and gray, and for some reason I never knew the coroner's name (Dr. Albert Robbins). Read more at maxallancollins.com.
