A body is dragged from the river, and the ME's office finds he's died from natural causes, and already been embalmed. The same day, Dr. Jack Merlin's roommate Kevin Hoover goes missing. A year later, Kevin's body is found in the Gross Anatomy lab, about to be dissected by medical students. Who is switching bodies of murder victims with those donated to science? ADA Tory Welch is on the case, and in danger from those who'd rather she didn't solve it.
