Review:
The CSI crew is investigating a slime-covered mummified body(!) when they stumble on a runaway teenager with a big secret. Now they want to know: who is this Danny Parker Fenton and what connection, if any, does he have with a killer who mummifies his victims and covers them in slime?

Wow. I'd never even heard of Danny Phantom when I first tried this fic and I was so impressed by it that I immediately went out to try and find some more DP fics. Danny's story is tragic and surprisingly realistic aside from the whole ghost business and his creepy but not completely evil relationship with Vlad Masters (the villain in DP canon, I think) is fascinating.

On the CSI side, you've got an interesting case file (including some science that is just about as accurate as in CSI canon -- which is to say, not very); appearances by nearly every CSI regular, with Greg and Grissom getting the most screen time; and a brilliant cameo by Lady Heather. Most impressive is Grissom's characterization -- he's not my favorite CSI character by a long shot, but he's just about awesome enough in this fic to make me change my mind.

If you like angsty hurt/comfort stories featuring strong characters and plenty of grey morality, then you should give this fic a try.
