Nine feet under water, police diver Flea Marley closes her gloved fingers around a human hand. The fact that there’s no body attached is disturbing enough. Even more disturbing is the discovery of the matching hand a day later. Both have been recently amputated, and the indications are that the victim was still alive when they were removed.
