Called in by Chattanooga medical examiner Jess Carter to investigate the death of a young man, renowned forensic anthropologist Bill Brockton is horrified when he is subsequently framed for Jess's murder, forcing him to apply his extensive investigative skills to prove his innocence. By the author of Carved in Bone.

Blackwell North Amer

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 mechanical 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 Chattanooga death scene at the Body Farm, but a killer tampers with it in a shocking way: placing another corpse at the setting, confusing authorities and putting Brockton's career and life in jeopardy. Soon Brockton himself is accused of the horrific new crime, and the once-beloved professor becomes an outcast. As the net around him tightens, 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, its twists and turns marked by drama and pathos, humor and grief, families and friends and enemies. With captivatingly real characters, plus fascinating scientific insights drawn from the case files of a living forensic legend, this astonishing novel confirms Jefferson Bass as one of our most talented authors of suspense.

Someone adds a corpse to the decaying bodies at the Body Farm, and Dr. Brockton's career is in jeopardy. Dialogue about evolution versus creation.

Oh! This had some sad parts! But overall it was a great book!

Not quite as good as the first but enjoyable nevertheless. Particularly liked that Dr. Brockton was working on a revision of his osteology handbook as I used Bill Bass' handbook for my university osteology classes.
