9780060759834: Flesh and Bone: A Body Farm Novel (Body Farm Novels)

Dr Bill Brockton is hard at work on a troubling new case. A young man's battered body has been found in nearby Chattanooga, and it's up to the talented Dr Brockton to assemble pieces of the forensic puzzle. Brockton is brought into the case by the rising star of the state's medical examiners, Jess Carter. Just as they are on the verge of breaking the case open, events take a terrifying turn. Brockton has recreated the Chattanooga death scene at the Body Farm, but a killer tampers with it in a shocking way: placing another corpse at the setting, putting Brockton's career and life in jeopardy. Soon Brockton himself is accused of the horrific new crime and the once beloved professor becomes an outcast. As the net around him tightens, Brockton must use all his forensic skills to prove his own innocence… before he ends up behind bars with some of the very killers he's helped to convict.

Review:

Nearly everything known about the science of human decomposition comes from one place - forensic anthropologist William Bass' Body Farm - CNN

Razor sharp...Fans of forensic fiction will want to add this author to their list of favourites - Booklist

From the Back Cover:

“…time, bacteria and bugs - especially the bugs - do the messy work of separating flesh and bone…”. A male corpse, dressed in fishnet stockings, stiletto heels, a blonde wig and wearing make-up, is trussed up and tied to a tree. At the University of Tennessee's Anthropology Facility, more familiarly known as the Body Farm, Dr Bill Brockton is replicating a recent murder scene. Returning to his experiment some days later, Brockton walks into a living nightmare. The corpse in drag has gone, and tied to the tree in its place is the body of one of his closest friends. Not only that, someone is going to great lengths to implicate him in their death. Suspected of murder and shunned by his former colleagues, Brockton must prove his innocence - as long as he can stay alive long enough. “brims with terrific forensic detail…the real deal” Kathy Reichs.
