Detectives Goren and Eames investigate the murder of an esteemed ear surgeon found slain in his office. During the investigation, Goren and Eames learn the victim had testified in a case involving a controversial cochlear implant and members of the radical deaf community. The detectives soon turn their attention to another doctor who had implanted this electronic device on a baby, who contracted an infection and died as a result of the surgery. Though this doctor has not completely been eliminated as a suspect, he offers an alibi that prompts Goren and Eames to team up with a detective who interprets for the hard of hearing, as they try to get to the bottom of a case in which no one seems willing to communicate with them.
