Distraction by dferveiro


Fandom: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
Genre: Gen, case, angst
Characters: Nick Stokes
Rating: PG-13

Synopsis: Set post-Stalker, this is an interesting twist on what could have happened if Warrick had continued to search Nigel Crane's house before hurrying to Nick. What would have happened if Nigel Crane had reached Nick first?

Review: Tightly plotted, consistent characterisation and Nickcentric. What's not to love about this fic? There's Nick bashing galore, but it's never gratuitous and Nick is never reduced to just a victim. Even Nigel comes out as being slightly sympathetic. The case holds together nicely, with some interesting twists, even if some of them can be anticipated if you're reading closely, but overall a very satisfying Nick read.

And to think that I found it on Sometimes it is worth venturing into the Pit of Voles, especially where this fandom is concerned, given the lack of anything approaching a central archive until very, very recently ::cough::
