È la fine di un’altra dura giornata di lavoro per l’anatomopatologa Maura Isles, quando un rumore improvviso nella cella frigorifera attira la sua attenzione: una giovane e bellissima donna, il cui cadavere era stato ritrovato in mare, ha ripreso a respirare. Trasportata d’urgenza in ospedale, la ragazza appare terrorizzata, si sottrae con violenza alle cure e si rifiuta di rivelare il proprio nome. Mentre medici e poliziotti le si accalcano intorno, la situazione precipita: la giovane ruba una pistola a un agente e prende in ostaggio sei persone, tra cui la detective Jane Rizzoli, al nono mese di gravidanza e in procinto di partorire. Chi è quella sconosciuta? Perché è così disperata? Maura dovrà trovare le risposte, in una precipitosa corsa contro il tempo. Perché il conto alla rovescia è iniziato.
