A corpse lying at the bottom of the stairs. A beautiful but troubled young woman. A brutal, decades-old murder. And the man charged with making sense of it all. Clay Edison is a former star athlete turned coroner's investigator. It's his job to care for the dead and the people they leave behind. It's not his job to solve mysteries. But some cases, and some people, can't be resisted. What he discovers will set him on a quest to overturn a hideous injustice, no matter the consequences.
