In a crossover episode with Without a Trace (2002) Catherine and Grissom work with FBI Agent Jack Malone when a palm print at a Las Vegas crime scene matches that taken at a New York crime scene 6 years previously. In the older case, a babysitter was killed and the four year old in her care, Jason Taylor, was kidnapped. In the Vegas case a woman, Carmen Davis, and a young boy are killed in her home. DNA confirms that the boys are not the same person but confirms that the perpetrator was responsible for at least two other murders. When a patrolman is killed, the killer has yet another victim.

'Gil' And 'Jack' Okay, But Not Exactly The Dynamic Duo
14 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Anthony LaPaglia, star of "Without A Trace," guest-stars here as "Jack Malone" of the FBI. Jack is in Las Vegas to investigate a abduction and killing of a 10-year-old boy and his babysitter, respectively. Malone thinks the boy is the same one abducted six years ago in New York City by a guy also slaughtered the babysitter. Is it the same killer, or even the same boy? Actually, this story gets a little confusing. There are a couple of boys involved in this story and several relatives and you begin wondering who is whom?

It wasn't really as riveting as one would expect, since it turns out to be a two-part story, and a "crossover," to boot, meaning it's continued on LaPaglia's show. Usually two-part stories are very intense and interesting. As mentioned, this was so-so and sometimes confusing.

Much of the show is "Jack" and "Gil," not exactly two dynamic to start with, especially "Jack," who is really a dud, personality-wise. He makes Grissom look like a stand-up comic.
