Quincy and Danny go on a fishing vacation to the town of Paradise. They check in and someone makes a phone call, and no sooner do they get on the lake than Jessica Casey motors up. The girl lost her mother and her father has gone to prison for it. She hired a private investigator to find an independent pathologist to prove her father did not murder her mother, and she believes Quincy is that man. At first Quincy protests, but her tale reaches his soft spot and he agrees to investigate. And that’s when his troubles begin, because it seems that at least one person doesn’t want Quincy poking around, and they aren’t shy about sending him that message...
Quincy: Somebody in this room killed Laura Devlin, and there are other people who know about it, otherwise, the conspiracy to try to stop me from investigating wouldn’t have happened.
Sheriff Connelly: I’m not going to be able to protect you if you keep this up...
Quincy employs a new technique for determining the gender of blood by checking the X chromosome. He creates the technique to Dr. Thomas Noguchi. Dr. Noguchi, the Chief Medical Examiner of Los Angeles County from 1967 to 1982, partially inspired the Quincy, M.E. television series.
