Cut to the Bone: A Body Farm Novel

Cut to the Bone: A Body Farm Novel - Jefferson Bass Dr. Bill Brockton is a forensic anthropologist teaching at a Tennessee university. He also consults on criminal cases using his expertise in forensics to help local authorities. In this book the bodies are piling up and strangely there is something familiar about the crime scenes. When another body is found in a recreation of a crime scene Dr. Brockton investigated years before he realizes that not only is there a serial killer at work, but also this is a serial killer who possibly has a personal agenda with Dr. Brockton himself. Will the “body farm” he and his assistant have started help in the apprehension of the killer? Only time will tell and it seems time is running out quickly.

Jefferson Bass is the pseudonym for the writing team of Dr. Bill Bass and Jon Jefferson. Dr. Bass is the originator of the real body farm, a laboratory dedicated to studying decomposition. Interestingly enough bringing the body farm into this novel supplied the reader with much unexpected humour. I knew this book was a prequel to his Body Farm series so I figured it would be a good place to start without any commitment to reading the rest of the series. (Because as I have stated numerous times, I simply do not have time to get involved in yet ANOTHER series) Well, as it turns out I enjoyed this book very much and now have two more “body farm” books in my TBR pile. Yes well … best intentions and all that.
