Plot Overview

A horrific car accident involving a transport truck causes a coffin to fall out of the back of the truck, and horrified onlookers notice the corpse inside to get up, exit the coffin and run down the street as if nothing happened. Arcaro notes ventilation holes on the sides of the 'coffin' and determines that it's a 'submarine', a type of device for illegally transporting human beings, and the name on the side of the coffin is Salvatore Rogero. Among the items found inside the coffin is a jar full of Italian candy, which really isn't candy at all, but pure heroin disguised as candy. Parker orders a rundown of all funeral homes in the area to try and find the undertaker who ordered the coffin and also begins a search for Mr. Rogero, who's unfamiliar with New York City and is wandering the streets trying to find the funeral home as well.
