A prominent FBI detective retires after developing heart problems, but is asked by the sister of his heart donor to investigate one last murder.

Terry McCaleb, renowned FBI detective from southern California, retired from his line of work when a massive heart attack left him in dire need of a transplant. Terry's post-work life of solitude on a houseboat is interrupted when a woman named Graciela Rivers surfaces, informing him that her sister -- murdered by a mugger -- was his heart donor; now, Terry must work within the limitations of his post-heart attack lifestyle to help identify her killer with the aid of his own blood work.
