|Summary, etc.:|| Dr. Bill Brockton takes on a seemingly routine case to exhume a body and obtain a bone sample for a DNA paternity test. But when the coffin is opened, Brockton and his colleagues are stunned to see that the corpse has been horribly violated. Soon he finds himself drawn into a flourishing and lucrative back market in body parts, when the FBI recruits him to help bring down a postmortem chop shop. Meanwhile, Brockton's friend and colleague, medical examiner Eddie Garcia, faces a devastating injury to his hands that could end his career. Garcia embarks on a desperate quest: Both of his ravaged hands will be amputated at the wrist and replaced with hands from a cadaver. But unless suitable ones are found soon, the opportunity will be lost. And as the criminal case and the medical crisis converge, a pair of simpler questions arise: Will Dr. Garcia survive - and will Brockton?
