Plot Edit

Dr. Sloan investigates a plastic surgeon when an actress's death apparently results from an infection contracted during surgery.


When Jesse's young patient in fine condition dies just after jogging, her supplier, a certain Marco with a criminal record, is hunted down and arrested but Amanda's autopsy proves his supplements were safe, a hospital infection killed her - after another plastic surgery in an amazing long series, all the more surprising for a girl of natural beauty. Now the popular but profit-driven Dr. Elaine Denell's specialized clinic is the target of an examination, which finds it was so badly managed that it is closed down, but Mark and Steve feel it's too easy, especially when the victim's former best friend is nearly killed by a car before Jesse's eyes, so they dig in the past of less obvious suspects...
