Dutton has laid out big money for what it's dubbing a "digi-novel" by the creator of the C.S.I. television franchise. The Penguin imprint paid millions for a multimedia three-book series from Anthony Zuiker that, at its centerpiece, features a mystery novel which will send readers to a Web site with companion footage relating to the plot.
Zuiker's chapters will close with codes that readers can use online to unlock "motion picture footage" that continues the storyline from the book.

So what do you think? Is this the book of the future?
