The strangled corpse of a pregnant woman turns up in an ice chunk on the Hudson. A man is poisoned to death by a lethal chemical that is almost impossible to obtain. A never-before-seen virus threatens to become an epidemic among Native American young people.
The corpses of a mother and child are unearthed in a spring thaw. A doctor is killed in her van, the only evidence being an unusual bite mark. A young Philippine bride disappears 16 years after her husband's first wife commits "suicide."
An almost-perfect murder in the classic Hitchcock tradition. A mysterious string of poisonings caused by an over-the-counter medication. A rape victim determined to have the last word. A look back at the original Siamese Twins.
A twisted case of sibling sabotage. A missing-person mystery with a sticky solution. A blood-soaked murder sniffed out by a canine Sherlock Holmes. A "perfect" crime foiled ten years after the fact. A "final answer" to the question "Who was the Black Widow"?
