Ten years ago, Las Vegas was terrorised by "CASt" - a vicious
serial killer responsible for nearly half a dozen brutal murders,
and who tested the mettle of the LVPD's new Captain, Jim Brass.
After a two-year spree, CASt suddenly disappeared and has
not been heard from... until now...
Grissom and his CSI team are called in to investigate a homicide
that perfectly fits the notorious criminal's modus operandi.
But all hell breaks loose when a reporter made famous by the
original cases receives a letter from someone claiming to
be CASt - and who says he has nothing to do with the latest
slaying. Now the CSIs must stop someone who may be a copycat
killer from striking again... even as a murderer from the
past continues to evade capture, and isn't taking too kindly
an interesting addition to the CSI series of novels.
The tale that unfolds turns out to be a very personal investigation
for Brass - it was the first meaty case he sunk his teeth
into when he moved over to the LVPD.
Allan Collins weaves a tale that is certainly worthy of the
CSI stamp. It probably wouldn't work that well as a
TV episode (too much of the plot relies on getting inside
the heads of the CSI team), but as a gripping accompaniment
to the show it works its magic.
Brass and the CSI team finally catch CASt? Is it CASt, or
is a clever copycat murderer attempting to lure everyone into
a into a sick and deadly game? It's up to the CSI crime lab
to find that piece of evidence, if it exists, that will help
everything slot into place.
