At the heart of this intriguing dramatic series is Jordan Cavanaugh, a smart, sexy, and fearless medical examiner who has a habit of going way beyond the call of duty to investigate crimes. Still haunted by her mother's unsolved murder when she was only 10 years old, Jordan puts her all into piecing together complex cases that have been hidden, shoved aside, or conveniently forgotten.
After a professionally and personally difficult stint in Los Angeles, Jordan returned to her hometown of Boston and to former job with the Massachusetts State Coroner's Office. Back home, Jordan is reunited with her ex-cop father, Max. She often turns to her father for investigative help. Together, they engage in some rather unusual role-playing that literally puts them in the heads of the killers and victims at the murder scene.
On the job, Jordan is supported -- at least most of the time -- by her boss, Dr. Garret Macy. Other colleagues assisting her are forensic entomologist Dr. Mahesh "Bug" Vijayaraghavensatyanaryanamurthy, grief counselor Lily Lebowski, and criminalist Dr. Nigel Townsend. Detective Woodrow "Woody" Hoyt provides the much needed legwork to track down the perpetrators Jordan and her team investigate.
