Inspired by the top-rated series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," CSI: MIAMI is a fast-paced drama that follows a South Florida team of forensic investigators who use both cutting-edge scientific methods and old-fashioned police work to solve crimes. Horatio Caine, a former homicide detective, heads a group of investigators who work crimes amid the steamy tropical surroundings and cultural crossroads of Miami. His team includes Calleigh Duquesne, a bilingual Southern beauty with a specialty in ballistics; Eric Delko, an underwater recovery expert who knows all the twists and turns of the Florida waterways and Ryan Wolfe, who after joining the department two years ago, still hasn't found his place within the team. Rounding out the team is Alexx Woods, the no-nonsense know-it-all coroner and Natalia Boa Vista, the enigmatic 'grant girl' and DNA specialist assigned to solving cold cases. Helping Horatio with cases is Det. Frank Tripp, a tough, yet thorough police officer. Together, these investigators collect and analyze the evidence to solve the crimes and to avenge those who cannot speak for themselves, the victims.
