Lesser 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...
is another worthy addition to the CSI: Miami series
of novels. The action begins over in Las Vegas - Gil Grissom's
territory - as the CSI unit have been trying to gather all
the proof needed to bring Thomas Lessor in on charges of murdering
Erica Hardy, a singer who was sexually assaulted and beaten
that evidence is not processed quick enough, leaving Lessor
the opportunity to hightail it to Miami. When his body is
discovered - hacked up and buried on the beach in a refuse
bag - the CSI: Miami team must set about piecing together
the clues that will lead them to Lessor's killer.
loved the way the Las Vegas and Miami labs worked together
in this book - it's a great way to bring in fans of CSI
who may not have seen CSI: Miami.
are some unbelievable elements though. I doubt very much that
Mrs Lessor, despite how much she pushed, would have been told
quite so coldly what had happened to her husband's remains.
Why did they need to tell her that he was found in pieces
in a rubbish bag? They had already told her that he was dismembered
and telling her the additional details seemed a bit unnecessary
- at that early point anyway.
Max Collins is given full credit for this book on its cover,
but later on we discover that at least 50% of the credit should
also go to Matthew V Clemens and Chris Kaufman, without whom
this story would not have been as believable and well researched
as it is.
worthy addition to the CSI: Miami stable.
