Dominic Da Vinci, a Vancouver city coroner, investigates the death of Roxanne Flowers, a woman fished out of Burrard Inlet. Her death matches that of many other recent deaths: she's aboriginal, she's a known low-rent prostitute, she had a high alcohol blood level on death, and she was found offshore. With the alcohol, Dr. Sunny Ramen, the pathologist on the case, finds that Roxanne's blood alcohol level was 0.9, three times higher than a lethal level. Dominic thinks it's time to bring in the Homicide Department to investigate. Dominic butts heads with his boss, Chief Coroner Jimmy Flynn, over his want to open up old case files to see if Roxanne's death is only one is a series of related homicides. The tension between the two rises as Jimmy is now dating Dominic's ex-wife, Patricia, who is a pathologist in the Coroner's Department. Det. Leo Shannon isn't too happy either as he was the lead investigator on many of those old cases ruled accidental. Deep into this case, another prostitute...
