A wonderful insight into SOCO/CSI as we are now more familiar with from TV and film. We learn of the acronyms and skills that are used to capture the evidence as the story unfolds. This is the first in the series and the characters are getting established.
A promotion is up for grabs. Some are sure of getting it whilst others are quaking in their shoes- either because they might get it or they might not. Personal issues arise in the midst of an investigation which to me always give the characters more depth whatever the "issue" might be.
To have more than just "work" gives personality and insight into how someone ticks and how they might deal with future situations. Roger is a wonderful character as we learn of his life, his lives and his misdemeanours. Whatever he is, he is tenacious and won't see justice served the wrong way. A very clever story, told in a brilliantly captivating way.
