A suicide on a college campus.
A tragic case with a simple resolution.
But for medical examiner Sara Linton, it just doesn't add up. When two more suspicious deaths follow and a young woman is brutally attacked, it becomes clear that she's looking for a murderer.
The college authorities are reluctant to cooperate and Sara isn't any closer to finding the answers she needs.
With the violence triggering memories of a past she'd rather forget and the clues pointing ever closer to home, can she uncover the truth in time to save the next victim?
