A "modern age" magician disappears from the coffin in which he had buried himself for thirty-one days...only to reappear in an older magician's "blade box", with seven swords stuck in his body. Goren and Eames initially suspect the old man of murder, but he is quickly cleared when the M.E. informs them that the victim starved to death. However, further testing shows that he had been given potassium cyanide through his I.V. drip, mimicking a heart attack, and the investigation turns to a small circle of suspects who had their own motives for wanting this magician dead.
