A Boston vengono scoperti i cadaveri di due giovani donne orrendamente mutilate. Scattano immediatamente le indagini, affidate alla detective Jane Rizzoli, donna determinata e tenace, ma frustrata per le discriminazioni di cui è oggetto nell'ambiente lavorativo. Jane individua ben presto un nesso tra l'orripilante rituale del serial killer, denominato "il chirurgo" per la sua conoscenza delle tecniche operatorie, e quello di un assassino che anni prima, a Savannah, aveva violentato, seviziato e ucciso diverse donne. Jane scopre anche che l'ultima vittima del killer di Savannah è riuscita a sfuggirgli e a ucciderlo e che, dopo il fatto, si è trasferita proprio a Boston, dove lavora come chirurgo.
