Hedge fund Wilder broker Timothy Hartley, Nathan Vella's partner, is shot and has his throat slit in a field 100 miles from his even richer wife Peregrine née Cook's Hillsborough mansion. The corps is stolen by two armed men during transport in coroner Steiner's van.

The coroner is allowed to collaborate clumsily for a morbid reason, which Jane helps carry to the bitter end. Written by
