New Orleans criminal psychologist Kit Franklyn, lately drowning in personal doubts about her life and career, thinks that investigating the corpse she found in the garden of her new home will be the perfect distraction. Together with her boss, chief medical examiner Andy Broussard, she sets out to solve this case that seems plain unsolvable. Though they identify the body as a missing hooker, now dead 27 years, all hope of conviction still seems lost. That is…until they link the body and two recent murders to a group of local, wealthy physicians. With the exotic New Orleans backdrop and forensic fun, Don Donaldson absorbs listeners into the lives of two protagonists with whom there's never a dull moment as they attempt to crack this disturbing case.
