Grissom, Catherine and Nick investigate a car bomb which resulted in the deaths of three people, one of whom was an air marshal who rented the car. Due to the imprecision of the detonator, the CSIs conclude that the target may not have been the air marshal, but the person who had previously rented the car. The man is a mystery himself, as he seems to be leading a double life. In town, Sara and Warrick work on the death of Amelia, the wife of Myles Reuben, a famous singer. His wife was found in her hotel's bathtub while Myles was performing downstairs. Written by Ploy P.

Don't fiddle with your class work
25 November 2009 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

I must confess, that i am a real fan of CSI, since it aired in Germany and even bought the original DVDs to watch with captions for the hearing impaired to see all the wonderful terms like the blunt forced trauma and more. This episode again has special implications, what looks like a terror attack on an Air Marshal ends up as a .... Gil Grissom as dominating as he was in the early seasons unties the story in his regular manner. And everything works out with the inherent logic, that CSI has made a favorite for me, my all time favorite being "Fur and Loathing in Las Vegas". But that is another story.

Have fun.
