Psychologist, heal thyself! Rachel Katz is a forensic psychologist who works at the intersection of law and psychology. She has almost convinced herself that this is easier than being a therapist. It's less complicated, with no messy emotions, no crisis, and nothing unexpected. Rachel's safe, predictable existence is shaken up by an invitation to conduct a psychological autopsy on a colleague, Alix Price. Even though Rachel and Alix had frequently been in conflict, Rachel accepts the job against her better judgement. Rachel attempts to use the investigation to avoid her attraction to the charms of Anna Sigurdson. Will Anna's persistence and patience get her past Rachel's fears of a broken heart?
