Csi Crime Scene Investigation The Killing Jar from the Author: Donn Cortez. A teenager is found dead in his motel room, the cause of death: millipede poison...Now crime scene investigator Gil Grissom must aid CSI's Nick Stokes and Riley Adams against a serial killer whose knowledge of entomology rivals his own -- a brutal murderer who is not only using insects as the tools of destruction, but actually modeling the attacks after their behavior.... In the meantime, CSIs Catherine Willows and Greg Sanders must investigate a bizarre death, where the victim had gotten mixed up with two very different groups of people -- one involved in using and dealing crystal meth, the other an avant-garde group of artists -- a collision of subcultures where everyone is a suspect and nothing is as it seems....

Blood Poison from the Author: D.H. Dublin. From the author of Body Trace in the CSU Investigation series. Crime Scene Unit (CSU): A group of forensic investigators who use cutting-edge technology to carry out crime scene investigations, helping to bring killers to justice. There are several things Madison Cross still has to learn about the CSU. For instance, how not to get personally involved in a case, or how to stay out of dangerous situations. And near the top of the list is how to break the bad news to families of the deceased. Especially when it’s a suicide. Such appears to be the case with the OD of Derek Grant, vegetarian and environmentalist. His distraught, wheelchair-bound father Horace has already found the corpse, and the case seems all but closed. But the more Madison investigates, the less Derek’s death makes any sense. As she entangles herself in the web of their perverse family, Madison realizes, to her horror, that the killer is honing in on her. Praise for D.H. Dublin “D.H. Dublin [is] the newest of the blood bards.”—Philadelphia Weekly “[A] brisk, tight novel. Anyone waiting for a CSI: Philadelphia spinoff should be pleased with this.”—Publishers Weekly
