As you all might remember, we began writing a critique of the NCIS show in 2011, when so many of those who buy and read our suspense novels sought our opinion about the authenticity of the show. Since part of David’s twenty-seven-year career as a Federal Agent was with what is now known as NCIS [...]

Tonight, CBS televised their first of six episodes of ’48 Hours: NCIS where they will feature reviews of real NCIS cases.

2017 Apr 18 NCIS Critique of “One Book, Two Covers”
