Storyline

Miami star defense lawyer Derek Powell's yacht is attacked during a party, his partner Nadine Alcott is fatally shot. The stolen jewels are all found in the thief's speedboat, which is found with city contractor Ken Taber. Only Powell's notebook remains missing. It contains no major court case data, but a copy of Eric Delco's Cuban birth certificate. Horatio manages to plant a hit-woman and finds out that Russian mobster Gregor Kasparov has a contract on Eric's head. The team must solve opportunity and motives, including that of Eric's DNA-proved relative Alexander Sharova. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?

Goofs

Although underwater assault rifles firing drag-stabilized projectiles do exist, it is impossible to aim a shot out of the water at a target on land (or, like here, on a boat). With a choppy sea surface, you probably couldn't even see the target, but if you could, you'd need to compensate your point of aim for the light refraction at the water's surface, the strongly curved trajectory of the projectile and possibly also for disturbance of the projectile when it leaves the water.

CSI Miami continues to get better and better
6 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must admit, CSI Miami has never been my favorite of the CSIs. The original was always my favorite and after seeing CSI:NY for the first time, it quickly became second. However this season, things are becoming more complicated. CSIs NY and Miami are have their best seasons making favoritism between the shows more difficult. Miami is still the weakest of the three, but they are moving in a very good direction. Now the stunning visuals we have become accustomed to are starting to be accompanied with interesting stories and more complex characters. "Sink or Swim" continues in the line of really good episodes. All of the recent Miamis have been some of the best episodes of the show. This one continues the trend nicely. The show isn't perfect yet, there is still room for improvement, but this episode once again shows the potential this show could have.
