Dr. Bill Brockton, the founder of the world-famous Body Farm, is hard at work on a troubling new case. A young man's battered body has been found in nearby Chattanooga, and it's up to the talented Dr. Brockton to assemble the pieces of the forensic puzzle. Brockton is brought into the case by the rising star of the state's medical examiners, Jess Carter.

Just as they're on the verge of breaking the case open, events take a terrifying turn. Brockton has re-created the gruesome Chattanooga death scene at the Body Farm, but a killer places another corpse at the site, putting Brockton's career and even his life in jeopardy. Soon Brockton is accused of the horrific new crime, and the once-beloved professor becomes an outcast. Brockton must use all of his forensic skills to prove his own innocence...before he ends up behind bars with some of the very killers he's helped to convict.

Flesh and Bone is another roller-coaster ride into the world of forensic anthropology, raising powerful questions about the nature of justice, loyalty, honor, and evil. This astonishing novel confirms Jefferson Bass as one of our most talented authors of suspense.

    " Enjoyed this book much more than the last. Will continue on with this series. Great forensic insight, attention to detail and suspense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Sherry | 1/26/2014

    " The forensic anthropology was more interesting than the character. I ran out of patience with the clumsily-devised protagonist. The ineptness of the 60-ish fellow, thrown into dating by the death of his wife, is not cute, just tiresome. His grandchildren run screaming when he knocks on the door because they saw on the news that he was a murderer. I mean, really. And there is some silliness about his being trans-phobic, and then inexplicably Miss Georgia Youngblood becomes his bosom buddy. Character development and interpersonal relationship description is just not subtle or nuanced. "

    " A surprise in this one. A good read. Not disappointing as some 2nd books can be. I really enjoy these authors. They make a great team. "
