Guy Langman, Crime Scene ProcrastinatorFeatured
They certainly aren't expecting to find a real dead body on the simulated crime scene they're assigned to collect evidence from. But after some girlish, undignified screaming, the two realize it is indeed a body. Which means they have stumbled across a real, dead murder victim.
Meanwhile, Guy has been looking into the past of his father—a larger-than-life character who recently passed away. He was much older than Guy's mom, and had a whole past Guy never even knew about. Could his father's past and the dead body be linked? Does Guy want to know? He's going to need all his new found forensics skills to find out . . .
To help Guy out of his funk, Anoop, his best friend gets him to sign up for the Forensics Squad. Guy isn't sure if he likes it since it includes work. But one day things change; he finds out his dad had a major secret,someone breaks into his house, and a real body is found at their mock crime scene! Does Guy have enough forensic experience to solve all these crimes while researching his own father's mysterious life?
Guy Langston makes a fabulous narrator. He is definitely has the voice of a teenage boy, who copes with some serious situations by adding a little locker room humor. Sometimes the humor comes at the right time and sometimes it is completely inappropriate. But this is understandable coming from Guy and his friends. It is what makes his voice so refreshing. Their humor reminds me a lot of my male friends in high school. Sometimes it made me laugh, sometimes it made me shake my head. The locker room humor isn't for everyone.
The story starts of slow, but Guy's humor helps make the reading enjoyable. The story quickly picks up pace with the arrival of a real crime scene. The book includes some uninteresting information about forensics, but nothing too complicated. The ending made the story worth the read. It was an enjoyable read and Guy's perspective brought realism and a great sense of humor to it all. Overall I truly liked the book.
