Things have taken a dangerous turn at the Body Farm. Dr Bill Brockton and his graduate assistant, Miranda, have been called to a death scene. A body has been found in a frozen swimming pool. The dead man is found to have been a renowned engineer, responsible for the Manhattan Project, which produced the atomic bombs of 1945. And he's been poisoned by a radiation source. Now Brockton, Miranda and the ME who carried out the autopsy are in grave danger . . . Suffering radiation sickness and worrying for his friends, Brockton delves into the town's gruesome past to discover the dark secrets and lies that have lead to this engineer's murder and to find out who else the killer has in their sights.

Review:

"This series...just keeps getting better. [Bones of Betrayal] features both the most compelling story and the best portrayal yet of Brockton, who has completed the transition from fictional representation of coauthor Bass to fully realized protagonist."--Booklist

From the Back Cover:

Dr Bill Brockton has just received an urgent call from the nearby town of Oak Ridge, home of the A-bomb in World War II. With his graduate assistant Miranda Lovelady, Brockton rushes to the scene, where they find a body frozen facedown in a swimming pool. The victim is Dr Leonard Novak, the designer of a plutonium reactor integral to the bomb. But when they carry out an autopsy, they discover he died of a searing dose of radiation. And everyone in the room is now in grave danger... A second body is discovered and the race to find the truth intensifies. As Brockton digs deeper, he uncovers a mystery that is far darker and more complex than he could ever have imagined. Will he discover the truth before more people die? Just how far back does he need to look to find the truth?
