(mbc.net) Terry McCaleb is one of the best and most thorough detectives at the FBI's Southern California office, until a massive heart attack sidelines him from police work for good.
Following a heart transplant which saves his life, McCaleb resigns himself to living quietly on a houseboat for the rest of his days, observing a strict health regimen prescribed by his cardiologist.
However, McCaleb is persuaded to take on one last case through the insistence of a woman named Graciela Rivers. Rivers's sister was murdered in cold blood by a mugger, and her heart was used for McCaleb's transplant; now, Rivers wants McCaleb to find her sister's killer.
McCaleb agrees to take on the case, but he quickly discovers his weakened physical condition makes the rigors of handling an investigation far harder and more difficult than it's ever been before; he also can no longer drive a car, and must persuade his oddball friend from the marina, Buddy Noone to ferry him around town.
McCaleb discovers evidence which suggests the murderer may be a serial who uses random street robberies as a cover, but he finds that the police detectives assigned to the case, are not especially interested in sharing the glory with the former FBI point man.
