Mortuary technician Cassie Raven believes the dead can talk. We just need to listen . . .
Cassie Raven is used to people thinking her job is strange - why would anyone want to cut up dead bodies for a living? But they don't know what she knows: that the dead want to tell us what happened to them.
She's eviscerated thousands of bodies, but never someone she knew, someone who meant a lot to her - until now.
The pathologist says her death was an accident. Her body is telling Cassie differently.
