Dr. Bill Brockton faces an ethical dilemma when his partner, Eddie Garcia, wants his help in replacing his mangled hands with those obtained on the black market from a fresh cadaver, in an endeavor where Eddie's supplier is the very funeral director that Bill is investigating. (Suspense). Simultaneous.
In this fifth installment in Jefferson Bass's popular forensic archeology series, a conflict of interests corners Dr. Bill Brockton: First of all, someone has been scavenging corpses for body parts to sell on the black market, and Bill must investigate. Then his friend, fellow medical examiner Eddie Garcia, asks Bill to help him with a complicated procedure. Bill's hands have been permanently damaged in a horrible accident. Without his hands, he will be unable to continue working. He has found someone with a pair of appendages that could save his career. But who is Eddie's supplier? As Bill juggles these dangerous and personal cases, readers are in for a suspenseful and at times disturbing read.
