Plot Synopsis

As the third installment of the CSI franchise, this procedural police show follows NYPD forensics officers as they solve mysterious and strange deaths in the Big Apple. Detective Mac Taylor supervises his team while work and real life sometimes overlap - yet they always band together to wind their tangled way through each (generally gruesome) stage of investigation until the unit finally catches its culprits. When the going gets tough, sometimes characters from the other CSI iterations come to lend a hand. Det. Mac Taylor, a dedicated and driven crime-scene investigator, is a decorated Marine who served in Desert Storm and dabbled in war photography. The team includes the newest addition, Jo Danville, an experienced investigator from Washington, D.C., whose work is driven by her empathy for the victim. They work with a team of experts, including: Danny Messer, an investigator with an unflappable spirit and a troubled family history, which he uses on the job as he blends his own set of hybrid ethics; Sheldon Hawkes, the crime lab's former coroner and a brilliant Ph.D., who transitioned to the field team; Don Flack, an edgy, hardcore homicide detective with a quick wit, impressive forensic insight and a long family history in law enforcement; and Lindsay Monroe Messer, a young, athletic CSI with a Midwestern work ethic who rarely hints at the dark and devastating secret that originally motivated her to dedicate her life to being an investigator. Lindsay and Danny are married and have a daughter, Lucy. Rounding out the team is lab rat Adam Ross and eccentric coroner Dr. Sid Hammerback. In the Season 8 finale, Mac was shot and fighting for his life somewhere between limbo and death, as his team brought the shooter to justice. Mac has recovered from his gunshot wound, and Season 9 opens with paroled serial arsonist Leonard Brooks returning to use fire against people from his dark past, including a fire chief, one of Mac's friends. Plus, in the new season, Mac and Jo travel to San Francisco in the case of a missing teenage girl.
