A former Medical Examiner raises suspicions about the causes of death in each case but only after a delay of several days. Are these ‘cold cases’ related? Do the victims’ backgrounds hold clues to their deaths? The hospital Chief of Staff calls on an old buddy from the Air Police, now a homicide detective, for help and the findings from the in-depth investigation are also unexpected.
