Body Farm Novel, Book 10
In this tenth entry into the popular Body Farm series, forensic anthropologist Dr. Bill Brockton has a new case.
Bones were found in a field near a tree with a chain attached to it. It is not a complete skeleton, and identification is not going to be easy, but with forensics and some good detective work, Brockton soon realizes that a young man met a gruesome death that was probably a hate crime.
But things get worse before they get better when the serial killer he helped put away escapes from prison, motivated by revenge. On a lighter note, Brockton’s beloved assistant has finally completed her dissertation and is looking for a new job, leaving him bereft.
This is a dark, suspenseful story with enough forensics to please any fan of the genre. The science is fascinating and never slows the story, due to the skill of the forensic/writer partnership known as Jefferson Bass. Fans of Kathy Reichs and Patricia Cornwell should enjoy Without Mercy, as well as the rest of Body Farm series.
