9780062277381: The Devil's Bones (Body Farm Novels (Paperback))

The secrets about violent murder are investigated at . . . The Body Farm

A burned car sits on a Tennessee hilltop, a woman's charred body in the driver's seat. Forensic anthropologist Bill Brockton's job is to discover the truth hidden in the fire-desecrated corpse. Was the woman's death accidental . . . or was she incinerated to cover up her murder?

But his research into the effect of flame on flesh and bone is about to collide with reality like a lit match meeting spilled gasoline. The arrival of a mysterious package a set of suspiciously unnatural cremated remains is pulling Brockton toward a nightmare too macabre to imagine. And an old nemesis is waiting in the shadows to put him to the ultimate test, one that could reduce Brockton's life to smoldering ruins."
