By Michael Connelly

"Thanks to a heart transplant, former FBI agent Terril McCaleb is enjoying a quiet retirement, renovating the fishing boat he lives on in Los Angeles Harbor. But McCaleb's calm seas turn choppy when a story in the 'What Happened To?' column of the Los Angeles Times brings him face-to-face with the sister of the woman whose heart now beats in his chest. From her McCaleb learns a terrible truth: that the donor of his heart was not killed in an accident, as he'd been told, but was murdered.

"Wracked with guilt over the fact that he's alive because another human being was slain, McCaleb springs into action. Reactivating his FBI connections and his expertise in crime scene interpretation, he embarks on a private investigation of his donor's murder -- a search that leads him to a crime more horrific than anything he ever encountered as a serial killer investigator for the FBI."

Soon, other gruesome deaths of a similar nature have been discovered, and the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta sends a forensic pathologist. an expert in epidemiology, to investigate. What she finds precipitates a federal crisis.
