Ducky is angered when one of his research cadavers is revealed to have been a murder victim and was mistakenly tagged as a “John Doe” and donated to science. The deceased man is identified by the team as a career felon, who was working with the FBI to track down a man suspected of supplying people with new identities. They discover the man’s murderer, an elusive individual known simply as “the Eraser”, has ties with major terrorists organisations around Africa, Europe, and the U.S. With no face to ID “the Eraser”, NCIS and the FBI join forces to find the suspect and Tony goes undercover with one of Fornell’s rookie agents.
