A reserve officer with a very successful DC business is sent to serve in Iraq with US Marines and is killed by a mortar attack. When his body is returned to Washington, his wife reveals that her husband had been in the middle of a business transaction with unscrupulous investors at the time of his death. Because of that, she doesnâ€™t believe that he was actually killed arbitrarily by Iraqis targeting the US military, which is confirmed by Ducky's autopsy, which shows a gun shot wound as the cause of death. She thinks he was singled out: murdered by a contract killer. The inexperienced but competent NCIS analyst Nikki Jardine is teamed up with with a reluctant DiNozzo and sent off to Iraq to investigate, while Gibbs and the rest of the NCIS team follow leads and investigate the crime from Washington.
