When a decaying body turns up in a remote woodland spot, Troy and Lexie are send to investigate. Before long, they find two more bodies and that all three victims have had their internal organs removed. One is missing a hand - and other parts. Is this grisly crime connected to an illegal trade of body parts? Where will the case take the new partnership of Troy and Lexie next?
