#1 Bloody Bonnet
The CSI miniseries finds a serial killer on the loose in Las Vegas. The CSI team soon discovers the unique aspect of the case - the killer seems to be reenacting the crimes of Jack the Ripper. Armed with the knowledge of the Ripper's crimes, Grissom tries to prevent history from repeating itself. Complicating matters is the fact that there is a Jack the Ripper convention in town, meaning hundreds of possible suspects! The team must work fast, as the clock is ticking...

#2 Ripper Mania
Modern day Las Vegas has a very familiar crime streak on its hands: someone is recreating the crimes of Jack the Ripper. Two have died so far, and it's up to Grissom and the CSI team to prevent any more murders from occurring.
The advantage gained by Grissom's recognition of the Ripper pattern is soon negated by the news that there is a Jack the Ripper convention in town. Now the CSI team has almost 150 potential suspects, all with intimate knowledge of the Ripper's crimes. With the convention ending in a week, time is short for the CSI team to solve the mystery before the Ripper claims his third victim.

#3 New Jack City
The CSIs deal with a copycat killer who's imitating Jack the Ripper, and Grissom is determined not to let history repeat itself. As he, Catherine, and Warrick do their best to out-think the new Jack, another dead woman is the object of Nick and Sara's attention... or are they all after the same killer?

#4 Don't Know Jack
Gil Grissom, aided by Catherine Willows and Warrick Brown, has finally interrupted the cycle of the Jack the Ripper copycat killer, and the evidence is beginning to mount -- from a bat-shaped bruise to a prize-winning pooch. But can the CSIs put the puzzle pieces together before a madman rips again?

#5 Jack Be Nimble
Two grisly cases come to riveting conclusions, as Sara and Nick bag the dumpster murderer, and Grissom, Warrick and Catherine close in on the serial killer whose Jack the Ripper slayings have terrorized the city and embarrassed the department. Is the killer a Ripperologist convention goer, related by blood to one of the original key Whitechapel suspects? The answer lies with a fiend whose motives may mirror the real Saucy Jack all too closely.
