Diane Fallon's crime scene unit is facing one of its worst ever cases: an explosion in a converted house has claimed many lives - from the students attending a party in one of the upstairs apartments to the junkies running a meth lab in the basement. Diane and her team will be sifting the evidence for days, searching the scene for any slight clue to the identities of the unrecognisable bodies. The incident has a devastating impact on the local community - with most people knowing at least one of the victims. One of the party survivors was even a member of Diane's staff - lucky enough to escape with her life. Diane is determined to discover the root cause of the explosion. But she must do so while avoiding the frenzy of media interest, local government officials keen to assign blame and the political machinations of a chief fire inspector who will stop at nothing to get Diane's job.

Years later, haunted by the massacres a continent away, she has been trying hard to put the past behind her. Until now...Working late at her museum, Diane hears a terrified cry that leads her to an injured man - and recognises him as a fellow WAI staffer from her days in South America. Clutching a child's femur in his hands, he whispers, 'It was one of us...' and dies. Now Diane is faced with some deadly questions - why was her former colleague trying to visit her? Why did he carry a human bone? Who did he mean by 'us', and just who attacked him? More importantly, is Diane the next on the list?

But just as she's adjusting to life without murder, the newly appointed chief of police and the mayor are shot dead. Back on the job, Diane sees, but can't quite believe, the evidence damning the former chief of detectives as the shooter. Someone with plenty to gain intends to get away with more than murder, and as the investigation reveals an ever-widening web of corruption and treachery, Diane realises that no one is safe - least of all her.
