In the Caribbean Sea near the Bahama islands, a tourist swimmer finds the submerged body of a seaman who has disappeared from a destroyer of the US Navy. The victim wore his dress whites, an officer's sword (honed to a razor-sharp edge), and a Saint Christopher medal; chained to the body were two weights of 25 pounds (11.36 kilos) apiece. Gibbs and company investigate aboard the ship and elsewhere; Abby tells them about a document of a strange sort in the pocket of the sailor's jumper, and she offers some insight about it. The team eventually identify aboard the same ship a petty officer who's connected with the victim and the death; they also save the skipper from an explosion. Written by

Abby refers to the main method of combat between the two players of "The Immortals" video game as "parley". She should have used the word "melee". Parley would have meant that they merely hurled insults at each other. Melee refers to some form of hand-to-hand combat. See more

You know Abby, sometimes the dead make more sense to me than the living.
