Book Review #34: Snake Eyes

***Note:  This book is not in the public domain.  --Tim

Snake Eyes is a CSI: Crime Scene Investigation novel written by Max Allan Collins. It is the eight book of the CSI book and is based on the original CSI television series. In this story, the CSI team is called to go to a town which is a forty five minute drive from Las Vegas to investigate a shootout between two rival biker gangs in a casino in which the leader of one of the gangs and a dealer, a young single mother, are killed. Tensions are high in the town. The crime lab is short on personnel at the time due to some being on vacation and others being involved with hearings. All but two people from the swing and night shifts are sent to cover the shootout while the other two are left to handle whatever comes up during the swing and night shifts.

This is the first CSI book I’ve read and I like it. It is about like all of the CSI shows where there are usually two different investigations going on at the same time. Some go easier than others. It also kept me guessing at what will happen next and who done it.

  1. Nice review, Tim. So this one was your first Collins novels? I have contemplated the series, but have not read any of them yet. Would probably start with the first.

    1. Yes, this was my first Collins novel as well as CSI. I liked all of the CSI series on television, but saw the least of this one since it was on the same evening of the week as other activities that I was involved with at the time. I picked this one up with a couple other CSI novels at a thrift store. They were all the novels they had there at the time for this series.
