Anthropologist Dr. Bill Brockton founded Tennessee's world-famous Body Farm--a small piece of land where corpses are left to decay in order to gain important forensic information. Now, in the wake of a shocking crime in nearby Chattanooga, he's called upon by Jess Carter--the rising star of the state's medical examiners--to help her unravel a murderous puzzle. But after re-creating the death scene at the Body Farm, Brockton discovers his career, reputation, and life are in dire jeopardy when a second, unexplained corpse appears in the grisly setting.
Accused of a horrific crime--transformed overnight from a respected professor to a hated and feared pariah--Bill Brockton will need every ounce of his formidable forensic skills to escape the ingeniously woven net that's tightening around him . . . and to prove the seemingly impossible: his own innocence.
Well, you know I do love a good Body Farm novel :) This one definitely headed in a direction I didn't see coming either. Hard not to just go straight to the next one, now that I have them all on my kindle, but I do like to mix it up a bit.
