While I wasn't expecting some of the plot twists in one of the cases, I found the other one to be rather predictable.

Review soon. ( )

It was very nice to read about a horrible heat wave considering the cold snap that was happening while I read this book. I also got the feeling that the author, Mr. Kaminsky didn't really like the character of Stella, in the first book she got to suffer through a unique disease for most of the book and then she got an interesting subplot in this book too. Though, she also seems to get the short end of the stick on the TV show as well, so I guess the characterization could be considered canon.

Basically there were two main plots, one was the case of a murdered family except for the youngest son, the other the murder of an Orthodox Jew and a Messianic Jew (which I didn't know existed). The characters are written closely to the show and both Danny and Stella have their own subplots. What impressed me was how well the minor characters were written, succinct back stories that gave each of them life and made them unique from the other minor characters. ( )

This was a GREAT CSI: NY read, and I don't even like the show!

As always, there were two separate storylines:

Mac and Danny are working on the murder of a young teen and both her parents, along with the disappeareance of their young son.

Stella and Aidan are working on a case that seems to involve ritualistic murders -- while at the same time, someone is stalking Stella and wants her dead.

A great, fast read! ( )

When a coworker saw me reading a TV tie-in she said "It's like fic, but without the smut" and she was pretty much right. Good fic, too! Nice quick read. Found it interesting that the author chose to bad Stella's history a bit, I liked that. Gave more back story in general than we can expect to get in weekly episodes.

I liked Stella's stalker, and though I wish he hadn't taken the turpentine, I like how they developed him. How she sat with him. I felt a bit bad for Joshua, but not Bloom. Interesting plot there. Like how the author periodically mentioned where each of them was. Don't think he's spent much time in NY though. Summer allergies hitting Stella that badly? Nahh.

I liked Mac with the Vorhees case. That was very Mac, and I loved Rufus.

Book description
Detective Mac Taylor is a dedicated crime scene investigator who believes that everything is connected and everyone has a story. He and Detective Stella Bonasera lead a team of crack forensic experts through the gritty and kinetic world of New York City as they piece together clues and eliminate doubt to ultimately crack their cases.

A modest home in a suburban Queens neighborhood is the unlikely site of a grisly crime scene: a married couple and their daughter are found brutally murdered. Missing from the scene is the couple's young son, and Mac Taylor and Danny Messer soon uncover signs of a possible kidnapping. Can they find him before it's too late?

In a heavily Orthodox Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, the body of a devoutly religious man is found ritually displayed on the floor of his synagogue. Stella Bonasera and Aiden Burn initially suspect a fringe fundamentalist group that has had run-ins with the victim's congregation, but the group is led by a charismatic and antagonistic man who does everything he can to stonewall the team's investigation.

Two very different crimes, with one thing in common: CSI investigators who won't stop until they uncover the truth.
Haiku summary
