In a national forest near Washington, DC, a young couple find the body of a Navy lieutenant commander in his dress-blue uniform; Gibbs and company investigate; on a rock nearby Tony finds a single word written in the victim's blood. The Metro PD finds the victim's abandoned car in Washington. Ducky finds that the shooter used ammunition of an unusual type, Gibbs and McGee talk with a specialty publisher, and Tony and Ziva find the body of an FBI agent, so Fornell enters the picture. The publisher leaves the country, then Gibbs and Fornell speak with the author of a mysterious book, who tells them about the contents. Tony, McGee, and Ziva arrive at a self-store room in time to see two stars and a couple of helpers get blown up; the admiral recovers well enough to go home, and he gives Gibbs and Fornell a lead; they pursue it, but Abby says to hold the phone, then she directs them to the real killer, and they nail him.

Did You Know?
If any insurgents should want to "wipe out entire villages" in Afghanistan, why would they purchase exotic, unknown American gun prototypes on Cyprus and smuggle them across several international borders when they could just pick up any number of AK-47s and other old Soviet weapons that already are in Afghanistan? They'd kill the people just as dead and are available at every Afghan street corner for about $100 a pop. Also the ammo is much cheaper and certainly does not "under-penetrate". See more
