From the official press release:Investigating CSI: An Unauthorized Look Inside the Crime Labs of Las Vegas, Miami, and New York
Edited by Donn Cortez
CSI’s team of forensic investigators are on the case 24/7, scouring the scene, collecting the irrefutable evidence, and finding the missing pieces that will solve the mystery. Does a missing bullet imply a murder? Can a strand of hair find a killer? Are a few fiber strands enough for a death-row pardon? CSI
and its spin-offs, CSI: Miami
and CSI: New York
, answer these questions for their viewers each week, providing a backstage pass to the real-life laboratories of Crime Scene Investigators.
Now, readers can enter the world of CSI where DNA testing, evidence analysis, crime-scene photography, and autopsy procedure are all in a day’s work. Be a part of the investigation with Investigating CSI
