Synopsis: Associate Professor Kiriyama Yuki (Nakama Yukie) of forensic medicine at Saikyo Medical University, has masterful skills but is nicknamed Queen for her selfish behaviour. Inukai Hajime (Matsumura Hokuto), a fourth year student with no interest in forensic science, was assigned to her. She works him hard. However, he seems used to it. A man called Otsuka Daiki (Uchiura Junichi) falls to his death from a building. This happened while detective Murakami Mamoru (Tanabe Seiichi) was pursuing Otsuka who had been behaving suspiciously. Although Murakami insists that Otsuka committed suicide, he is suspected of pushing him off the building under the circumstances where he reached out for help but plunged. Otsuka’s bag contains a lot of jewellery that is believed to be stolen goods. The police find a wristwatch with the engraved characters “Uryu Kozo”. When they visit the residence bearing this name, they find the dead bodies of Uryu Kozo (Yamada Meikyo), the CEO of Uryu Bussan, and his wife Setsuko (Tezuka Satomi). While Otsuka is believed to have committed the crime which turned violent when he was detected, Yuki notices something strange. There is a difference in the time of death for the couple for some reason. On top of that, there is a complicated situation between Kozo’s son Jun (Hakamada Yoshihiko) and Setsuko’s son Hitoshi (Takaki Yuya) from her previous marriage.
