Along a lonely road at night near the Naval Air Station, Oceana, Virginia, near Norfolk and Virginia Beach, a Naval officer (a lieutenant commander in the Dental Corps) dies of a single shot to his back, apparently in an execution-style murder; Gibbs and the gang investigate, with the insistent cooperation of the woman sheriff of the county. Soon a civilian employee of NAS Oceana dies under identical circumstances two counties away, then a lieutenant, a Naval aviator from NAS Oceana, dies nearby also under identical circumstances plus a twist. Two suspects have airtight alibis, but a records clerk explains the identical angles, then the team catch their quarry. Written by
