Carved in Bone: A Body Farm Novel

A Body Farm Novel

Body Farm Novel

Dr. Bill Brockton is a world-famous forensic anthropologist who has spent his career surrounded by death and decay, all in the name of forensic science. As the founder of the Body Farm, the only laboratory devoted to the study of human decomposition, his groundbreaking discoveries have given law enforcement agencies around the world valuable tools for investigating murders. And while death touches him in some way almost every day, the loss of his wife two years prior makes him fearful of his future alone and forces him to reflect on his life in new ways. When an unusual corpse is discovered in a cave in East Tennessees rural and mountainous Cooke County, an insular community distrustful of outsiders, Brockton is called in to examine the body. The specimen is an almost perfectly preserved mummy - transformed to "grave wax," a condition when the body decays at an extremely slow rate, and leaves an almost gel-like mold of itself. Even a seasoned expert like Brockton is hard-pressed to identify the cause and time of death in this unique cave environment where decomposition breaks all of the rules. But when the discovery of the dead body reopens old wounds and rekindles feuds dating back decades, its evident that the challenging forensic science is only the tip of the iceberg, and solving this cold case wont be easy...
