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. Given two earlier victim thefts inter-state, the FBI suspects organ tissue trade and sends special agent Craig O'Laughlin. Tim also was treated for an alien abduction delusion in that distant field. The coroner is allowed to collaborate clumsily for a morbid reason, which Jane helps carry to the bitter end. Written by

Why did you tell Peregrine Hartley to lie to us, sir?
I didn't tell her to lie. I asked Peregrine not to raise certain irrelevant information.
