9780062344106: The Breaking Point: A Body Farm Novel

Past, present, and future collide to throw respected forensic anthropologist Bill Brockton’s successful, secure life into devastating turmoil in this poignant novel in the New York Times bestselling Body Farm mystery series.

It’s been ten years since Dr. Bill Brockton created the Body Farm—the world’s first postmortem research facility dedicated to advancing the frontiers of forensic science—and the researcher is at the pinnacle of his career. Under his leadership, the University of Tennessee’s forensic anthropology program has become the most prominent in the world, and Brockton’s skills and knowledge are in high demand among top law enforcement. Calling him in for a number of high profile cases, the FBI now wants him to identify the charred remains of a maverick millionaire, killed in a fiery plane crash.

But a storm is about to hit Brockton with cataclysmic force. First, his identification of the crash victim is called into question. Then he receives a threatening message from the serial killer who attempted to murder the scientist and his family a decade ago. And from Brockton’s beloved wife Kathleen—his lodestone and his source of security—he gets the most shocking news of all. Will Brockton be able to weather this deluge . . . or has he finally reached the breaking point?

From the Back Cover:

Dr. Bill Brockton—founder of the University of Tennessee's macabre Body Farm—finds himself pulled into his highest-profile case ever: identifying the remains of a pilot killed in a plane crash outside San Diego. Are the charred bones indeed those of Richard Janus, a maverick celebrity humanitarian? And was the nighttime crash an accident, a suicide—or a murder?

Brockton wrestles with the case, unaware that a cataclysmic storm is gathering. He's landed in the middle of a nasty political battle, and the future of his research facility is called into question. Reeling from these blows, he receives a gruesome threat from a killer who nearly murdered the Brocktons more than a decade before. But worse is to come: from his beloved wife, Kathleen, Brockton gets the most shocking news of all.

Will the legendary Dr. Bill Brockton be able to weather the onslaught . . . or will it push him beyond his breaking point?
