5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent novelisation, 24 Aug 2007
This review is from: Sin City (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) (Mass Market Paperback)
'Sin City' is the first in the series of novels based on the TV series C.S.I: Crime Scene Investigation. The author, Max Allan Collins (who has also written books for the C.S.I: Miami series), does an excellent job of bringing the characters of the show to the page and recreating the style of the show perfectly.

The book begins when Lynne Pierce, a devoted Christian, disappears just a day after she has given a tape recording to her friends, of an arguement she has recently had with her husband saying that he is going to kill her and cut her into pieces. Gil Grissom, Jim Brass, Nick Stokes and Warwick Brown begin the investigation and soon find a part of her body leading them to suspect that the husband is to blame, only they need the evidence to prove it.
Elsewhere, Catherine Willows and Sara Sidle, with the help of a new character, Detective Conroy, investigate the murder of a stripper who has been strangled to death in a locked room.

The missing person case is probably the better half of the story, but both cases are very tense and enjoyable and tie up quite nicely at the end and will keep you guessing until the last page. Each of the characters is very well written and are exactly like their TV counterparts. The new character, Conroy is a nice addition to the team, making the book feel a little more unique. For any fan of C.S.I. this is a must-buy and you will not be disappointed. For anyone who hasn't seen the show (is there anyone?!) but is a fan of the crime fiction genre in general, it is also a very fast-paced and decent read but will probably be more appreciated if you have seem the show. This is a truly unputdownable book either way.
