About the Author
Keith R.A. DeCandido was born and raised in New York City to a family of librarians. He has written over two dozen novels, as well as short stories, nonfiction, eBooks, and comic books, most of them in various media universes, among them Star Trek, World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Marvel Comics, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Serenity, Resident Evil, Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda, Farscape, Xena, and Doctor Who. His original novel Dragon Precinct was published in 2004, and he's also edited several anthologies, among them the award-nominated Imaginings and two Star Trek anthologies. Keith is also a musician, having played percussion for the bands the Don't Quit Your Day Job Players, the Boogie Knights, and the Randy Bandits, as well as several solo acts. In what he laughingly calls his spare time, Keith follows the New York Yankees and practices kenshikai karate. He still lives in New York City with his girlfriend and two insane cats.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
As many of us already know, in the Star Trek universe, Keith is King of the backstory, and this CSI novel is no different in that respect. We are privvy to the fears and dreams of the main characters we know and love, and what's more, Keith also takes us inside the minds of the criminals, giving us information unknown to the detectives and CSI's.
The story, just like many of the episodes, centers around two wildly disparate crime scenes, one in a prison and one in a bakery, and in the end, the crimes are solved using a number of cool techniques, clever thinking, and plain old dumb luck.
Add to that Stella Bonasera's "fifty-megawatt smile" (which can only be fully appreciated by actually watching Melina Kanakaredes deliver it on the show) and honest-to-God Italian cannoli, and, boom, you've got yourself a weeener.
