Forensic pathologist Megan Rhys has been asked to advise on the murders of two young prostitutes, dumped like rubbish on the streets. But there is something wrong with the information the police are giving her. Someone is trying to manipulate her and she's starting to doubt her own judgement.
The killings are starting to mount up, and someone has been breaking into Megan's house. She is being pressurized towards a solution, and everyone's trying to control her - including the murderer.
Can she see the truth in time?
