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.

A central line, also known as a central venous catheter, is a catheter that is placed into a large vein rather than into a small peripheral vein on the arm leg, as is most intravenous access. Central lines are usually placed in the internal jugular vein on the neck, in the subclavian vein on the chest, or in the femoral vein on the inside of the upper thigh near the groin. Central lines are used when rapid infusion of fluids or medication is needed or when the medication would be harmful to smaller veins because of the high-flow rate or the toxic effects that occurs with some chemotherapy drugs. A central line is also used when a patient is severely dehydrated, thus making access into the smaller veins in the arms or legs difficult. Plus, a central line would allow for a larger volume of fluids to be given. See more
