On Pensacola Beach, as the Coast Guard prepares for a Category 5 hurricane entering the Gulf of Mexico, they spot a huge fishing cooler about a mile offshore. Suspecting drug traffickers, they retrieve it and are shocked to find body parts wrapped in plastic. Though she's putting herself in the path of the hurricane, Special Agent Maggie O'Dell investigates. She traces the torso to a man who disappeared weeks earlier in Port St. Lucie - on the Atlantic side.
