FBI Agent Bruce Rivers


Marine lance corporal Lance Brewer's body is found by neighbor Liz Adler, tortured and bled to death in his garage. The only other fingerprints are of Lance's missing, recently retired squad leader in Iraq, Jack Kale - psychotic because of experimental medication. He is FBI agent Tobias Fornell's murder witness for the prosecution against New york drug lord Rick Azari, and is under witness protection. Once informed, Kale flees the safe-house to the home of third squad mate Michael Straus, an addict who was tortured to death there shortly earlier. Written by KGF Vissers

Don't mess with Gibbs
18 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I cannot understand how anyone can possibly think that they are going to hide anything from Gibbs and his team. McGee has the ability to get into any database and find out what you are hiding, and Abby is just a whiz at the arcane.

The FBI is holding a witness, but that doesn't stop Gibbs from digging. He manages to find out what the FBI doesn't know, as well as what they do know.

Abs provides the evidence that the FBI needs, but it is too late as their witness has a short fuse.

The interaction between Tony and Ziva was really funny and better than I have seen before. I think I will be checking this show out a lot more.
