AUGUST ANGST – NCIS: UXBRIDGE

DATELINE UXBRIDGE: Chapter 2: EVIL UNDERBELLY OF A SMALL TOWNGarry Armstrong, Reporting

On the surface, it seemed like a normal day in Uxbridge. But intelligence reports warned us not to be lulled into a false sense of security.

Yes, it seemed idyllic. Traffic was moving smoothly through the town’s main intersection. There was non of the usual slow driver traffic clog that’s typical of an August Friday afternoon.

Perhaps we should have noticed how quiet things were on the town green. This is the height of tourist season. People come from across the country to capture our bit of small town America.

Yes, suspiciously quiet.

A short distance away, the new NCIS Uxbridge team leader sensed something was wrong. His gut told him the serenity was  cover for a local sleeper cell.

This NCIS bureau chief was handpicked by the legendary Leroy Jethro Gibbs. Word had it the Uxbridge guy had worked deep cover with Gibbs, taking out mercs who threatened our nation’s security. Gibbs apparently trusted his Uxbridge peer, who some referred to as “a functional mute.”

Word filtered through Uxbridge.

The town library closed early. No teenagers gathered on the town common usually a popular hang out spot. BOLOs had been posted by the local LEOs for unspecified persons and vehicles but they offered few details, referring all inquiries to the new NCIS team.

But a badge was the only information supplied by any who questioned the new NCIS guy. Maybe it was the look on his face. Perhaps it was his rigid body stance that spoke volumes to those with loose lips.

Uxbridge is now on the grid for everyone — FBI, CIA, DAR, NRA, NSA, Homeland Security. They’ve probably planted moles and undercover agents everywhere. But make no mistake. In this town, NCIS is the top dog. In charge.

Grab your gear!

  3. Lol. Garry looks very suspicious of everyone. I suppose you never know who is lurking behind the trees or the cannon.

  5. Moles no doubt. And probably some gophers, raccoons and the odd hedgehog. Great piece.

    • Thanks, D.C. The local pols are at the top of our list. Think I’ll put Fornell and the Feebes on that one. They’re usually in bed together.

  10. I KNEW IT!.., that thing is deadly, a complete sleeper. Maybe you should start an official “Q7 Day”.., especially since the Uxbridge NCIS has made it their standard issue camera.., or maybe not..?

  11. This is fun! And funny. Looking forward to someone smacking the back of someone’s head and a goth-chick with a spiderweb tat. Does Garry build boats in your basement in order to avoid his weakness for redheaded women?

  12. I don’t know how many other people will find this as funny as I do. Maybe you need to know the town … and the author. NCIS Uxbridge. Coming to your TV screen sooner or later.
