This is the second book in the FOUR-MINUTE FORENSIC MYSTERIES series. CSI Wes Burton is back with his cast of quirky but loveable characters, including pathologist Dr. Crown, CSI technician Mike Trellis, Detectives Radley and Gibson, and Ed, the search-and-rescue border collie. Crime scenes include a man who may have spontaneously combusted, a claim of mistaken dog identity, and a room full of scorpions that may or may not be deadly. Burton and his crew use science to prove that drinking too much water can be deadly, that the DNA of an onion can prove murder, and that the smell of a greenhouse can sometimes be mistaken for a decomposing corpse. The Crime Files cast of characters relish their work solving crimes by using modern forensic techniques, though they rely on good old-fashioned humor to get them through each scene.
