9780062277381: The Devil's Bones: A Body Farm Novel

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.

About the Author:

Dr. Bass, a world-renowned forensic anthropologist, is the creator of the University of Tennessee's Anthropology Research Facility, widely known as the Body Farm. He is the author or coauthor of more than two hundred scientific publications, as well as a critically acclaimed memoir about his career at the Body Farm, Death's Acre. Dr. Bass is also a dedicated teacher, honored as U.S. Professor of the Year by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. Jon Jefferson is a veteran journalist, writer, and documentary filmmaker.

The coauthor of Death's Acre, he is also the writer and producer of two highly rated National Geographic documentaries about the Body Farm.

From AudioFile:

Tom McKeon's slow, deep voice is perfect for the character of Dr. Bill Brockton, a forensic anthropologist who runs a body farm in Cooke County, Tennessee. Brockton is known for his thoughtful scientific approach and depth of experience--that is, until he takes the radical step of burning a corpse to better understand the murder of a woman whose body shows evidence of being charred. McKeon depicts Brockton's anger at being caught and confronted and also portrays his feelings when he learns that the murderer of his former colleague and love interest, Jess Carter, has escaped from prison. As the plot takes listeners through Brockton's investigations and personal struggles, McKeon's voice aptly portrays his shifting moods.
