(From the publisher):
Dr. Mark Sloan is startled to discover a dead woman - dressed as a mermaid - washed up on the beach outside his home. Even more bizarre, the autopsy reveals a digital memory card within a capsule inside the body's stomach. The card contains the report of a forty-three-year-old murder in Los Angeles - the first homicide case Mark ever solved, when he was a struggling intern and newlywed father.
When a second body is discovered - a woman who was apparently the victim of an impromptu autopsy in her own kitchen - the good doctor realizes that he must find the connection between the two murders. And perhaps more urgently, the connection to his own past...
