Is the murderer a jealous high school student? A greedy caregiver? An angry homeless man? Or, someone else?

As the detectives work to unmask the killer, a bizarre, unrelated death draws their attention—and holds it. Unfortunately, the evidence in both cases is frustratingly scant. At the top of the list are several short-cut cherry striped straws, and a mysterious, corrosive salve. When the stars eventually align in the squad’s favor, their celebration is cut short by an unexpected catastrophe that threatens to pull the team apart again. And the mystery continues.
