Four young adults are brutally murdered in an upscale neighborhood, and the crime scene yields little evidence. Descriptions of two people seen walking nearby are used to create composite drawings, which become a key element in solving the crime.

The investigation of an exotic dancer’s disappearance leads to an isolated site where someone has been shot and cremated. Soft tissue attached to a piece of a foot yields enough DNA for a genetic profile, and positive identification of the victim.
