When skeletal remains are found in the Chesapeake Bay, Brennan and Booth are on the case to investigate. With only the upper torso of the victim intact, the team has little to work from besides the remnants of the victim's breast implants. Brennan and Booth are led to a small church community in Maryland where the victim was a pastor, but they have no record of her existence prior to moving to the small town five years prior. When the victim's lower half is discovered, the team realizes their initial assumptions about the victim may not be correct. As Sweets lends insight to the victim's psychological state and Brennan's latest grad student adds his own offbeat observations, the team must decipher who would have wanted her dead. From possible love interests to her family to the parishioners at the church where she was a pastor, the anatomy of the case is very misleading.
