Dr Bill Brockton is hard at work on a troubling new case. A young man's battered body has been found in nearby Chattanooga, and it's up to the talented Dr Brockton to assemble pieces of the forensic puzzle. Brockton is brought into the case by the rising star of the state's medical examiners, Jess Carter.

Just as they are on the verge of breaking the case open, events take a terrifying turn. Brockton has recreated the Chattanooga death scene at the Body Farm, but a killer tampers with it in a shocking way: placing another corpse at the setting, putting Brockton's career and life in jeopardy.

Soon Brockton himself is accused of the horrific new crime and the once beloved professor becomes an outcast. As the net around him tightens, Brockton must use all his forensic skills to prove his own innocence...before he ends up behind bars with some of the very killers he's helped to convict.
