Dr. Megan Hunt (Dana Delany) was in a class of her own, a brilliant neurosurgeon at the top of her game. Her world is turned upside down when a devastating car accident puts an end to her time in the operating room. Megan resumes her career as a medical examiner determined to solve the puzzle of who or what killed the victims. Meganâ€™s instincts are sharp, but sheâ€™s developed a reputation for graying the lines of where her job ends and where the police departmentâ€™s begins. It turns out her career isnâ€™t the only thing that will need to be rebuilt; Meganâ€™s family has taken a backseat to her ambition, and now sheâ€™ll discover thereâ€™s a lot of work to do when it comes to dissecting her relationships with the living.
