Horatio Caine (David Caruso), 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 (Emily Procter), a bilingual Southern beauty with a specialty in ballistics; Tim Speedle (Rory Cochrane), a cocky yet disarming investigator who is well connected on the street, and Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez), an underwater recovery expert who knows all the twists and turns of the Florida waterways. Rounding out the team is Alexx Woods (Khandi Alexander), the no-nonsense, know-it-all coroner. And, after Speedle is killed in action, former Patrolman Ryan Wolfe (Jonathan Togo) joins the team. Together, these investigators collect and analyze the evidence to solve the crimes and to vindicate those who often cannot speak for themselves - the victims.

Real-life police and prosecutors have noticed that due to the "CSI Effect", real-life criminals have started covering their tracks and are destroying potential evidence against them before leaving crime scenes. One example of this is when double-murderer Jermaine McKinney broke into a house and killed a mother and daughter, he then proceeded to wash blood away with bleach, burn his clothing to destroy evidence, blanket his getaway car to avoid blood transfer, remove his cigarette butts from the scene, and attempted to dispose of the murder weapon. McKinney was a big fan of CSI, and this type of calculated behavior is no isolated incident as some rapists have now begun forcing their victims to shower after an attack in order to wash away any forensic evidence. "(These shows) are actually educating potential killers even more", said head of Los Angeles Homicide Division Captain Ray Peavy. "Sometimes I believe it may even encourage them when they see how simple it is to get away with on television." Peavy isn't alone in his thinking. "(Criminals) do clean-up, and they tend to clean-up much more carefully now," said Linda Johnson, a crime lab director in Jefferson County, Alabama. "A lot of them know they can use bleach and different detergents to mask our ability to take blood." See more
In the Czech dubbing of the series, the female character Maxine Valera is often referred to as a man, "Valera" being "his" first name. This is caused by the lack of knowledge of the translators in terms of first name/last name usage in the United States. In Czech, a name sounding similar to "Valera" would be men's name. See more

Lace on a rug?
Shoot me if it comes to that.
