Show synopsis Stevie Croft, Orange County's most successful prosecutor, is running a losing campaign for district attorney when she is assigned to the most heinous crime in the county's history. A body is discovered composed of the severed parts from five different people, all crudely sewn together to form one grotesque corpse. Stevie has the chance to ride this high-profile case right into office. Then the killer begins leaving cryptic messages for Stevie in her home, in her office, even in her purse. Calling himself "The Tutor," he claims that deciphering these clues will not only lead her to his identity, but save the lives of his future victims. His taunting clues target her darkest secret: since she was 10, Stevie has hyper-memory, a combination of photographic memory and total recall which causes her to precisely remember everything she's ever seen, heard, or read. While often a strength that gives her a competitive edge, this condition is also her Achilles heel--excruciatingly painful migraines are often a by-product. As her pain escalates, so do the killer's clues.
