    " It was interesting learning about the history of the radiation, the harm and benefits of it. Alot of people put themselves at great risk for the advance of technology. I love this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 2/16/2014

    " Ok read - thought the ending was a forced and contrived. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Theresa Raymer | 2/9/2014

    " I didn't particularly like this one. It has alot of descriptions and it has a lot of forensics that I have found to be boring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/21/2014

    " This book is centered around Oak Ridge and the Manhattan Project in Tennessee. Although the beginning seems to be a typical murder/mystery written by Jefferson Bass, once you get into the main body of the novel there is nothing typical about it. I learned alot about World War II and the atomic bomb while reading this which surprised me. It was a very nice change of pace from the last few Jefferson Bass books that I have read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corinne | 1/17/2014

    " The Body Farm Novels...another of my favorite series. This one had a different feel to it, almost like historical fiction. Loved it from beginning to end! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phyllis | 1/5/2014

    " This is the best of the series so far, in my humble opinion. Not only is there a good mystery murder plot, there is a wealth of information on the Manhattan Project and insights into many facets of FBI and detective work. Loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 12/23/2013

    " Interesting. Addicting. Wonderfully written. There's nothing that I love better than a book that makes me think and this book did that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 12/15/2013

    " I have liked this series of books. This one had the added story and history of the Manhattan Project/Oak Ridge--great intrigue!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 11/24/2013

    " This one had an interesting premise, the solving of a murder that went back to the days of the Manhattan Project. It also details some things that make me terrified of radiation poisoning. I love this series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha | 10/18/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shiela | 6/17/2013

    " This one was the best book in the series so far. Informative, very descriptive (as per ususual) and surprisingly on topic. The conclusion came out of no where and I don't think anyone could have seen it coming. The very, very descriptive autopsy was...interesting...I could almost smell it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 3/3/2011

    " This series is a tired genre of pathologist thriller but this team gives it new life with all of their books. The writing is real, the people are real, the explanations of medical or scientific details is not boring.

    I recommend all of these books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise "Renee" | 2/28/2011

    " Loved all the history of Oak Ridge, The Atomic City. The story was good, but the ending feels rushed and tacked on. "

    " An author I adore. There was a bit of twist in the end, though I had an idea of what might happen. And I felt so bad for Eddie Garcia. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lene | 11/20/2010

    " Not as good as the other too... Too much waffling about the making of nuclear weapons, which was not easy for me to understand. I found it interfered with the story itself. "
