At a fancy pool party, Miami socialite Ethan Parker is shot during a hold-up while starlet Dakota Hudson's diamonds are stolen, she was also shot in the pool. Another plausible motive is to cash in on the 'death pool' bet organized by Hover Gambling on its cruiser, Fortune maker. Furthermore the diamonds prove to be fake and there is a particularly immoral case of extortion going on. Written by KGF Vissers

People Will Bet On Anything!
2 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some jewelry business hotshot is hosting a party for the young-and-beautiful when gun- toting thieves interrupt the fun with a robbery. The host says about $30 million of his stuff was being worn by the guests, who wind up killing two of the people, one of them a Paris Hilton-type socialite named "Dakota Hudson" who was in the swimming pool. A big twist is revealed early on as it's discovered that the bullet that killed her was fired from in the water, so there was a third shooter. Was that killing tied in with the robbery or was it separate?

The top two suspects are the ones who had Hudson on their "Death Pool" list, a list of about five people who they are betting on will die within a certain time or before others (sick, eh?). The "pool" is run on a boat three miles offshore which makes it untouchable to the local police.

Once again, this is another stylishly-photographed episode. I've noticed the cameramen have turned up their visual tricks with some added photo gimmicks this season. That's fine with me; it makes it all the more fun to watch and the colors have always been spectacular on this show. CSI: Miami has a lot of glitz but I think that's what makes it distinctive and fun to watch, among other things.

Overall, it isn't a particularly-involving story but it is good enough and I always like to see the human side of David Caruso's character, who seems to have extra compassion for little kids who are victims of their morally-bankrupt parents. When Horatio promises to look after a child, he always delivers.
