I just love the research that goes into these books. in this story, the Jefferson Bass team take us to Marianna, Florida, site of the notorious Florida Home for boys. Excellent ( )

Forensic anthropologist Bill Brockton is called when a dog drags a human skull back to a backwoods cabin. The skull is that of a young boy and when another turns up the search is on for the source. The search leads to a new murder and the grisly discovery of an abandoned reform school with deadly secrets. In the meantime Brockton's assistant is devastated by the death of her sister. The death is declared a suicide, but Angie is convinced that her sister was murdered by an abusive husband. She and Dr. Brockton race against time to obtain evidence to reopen the case. Good on atmosphere and characterization.

As the book opens, Dr. Bill Brockton is teaching forensic techniques to a class visiting his “Body Farm” at the University of Tennessee. Angie St. Claire is a visiting Florida forensic analyst who leaves abruptly when she receives an urgent phone call. Later she calls Dr. Brockton and asks him for help – her sister’s death has been ruled a suicide, but she believes she was murdered by Angie’s brother-in-law. Bill and Angie form a professional bond over investigating the family death, and when a local man’s dog finds a human skull, Angie asks Bill to take a look at it and give his professional opinion. The skull eventually opens an investigation into a nearby juvenile detention facility that burned down more than forty years earlier.

As usual, the author’s storytelling pulls you immediately into the story. One problem I had with the story is that the investigation of Angie’s sister seems only to be a plot device to get Dr. Brockton to Florida. Because of the dual investigations the plot becomes a bit convoluted and confusing in places. This wasn’t really necessary as Angie could have just as easily called Dr. Brockton to consult when the skull was found; he didn’t need to already be in the vicinity. But once the focus is turned onto the juvenile detention facility, the story evens out and becomes absorbing, if heartbreaking. I must include a strong warning that this book involves stories of young boys being verbally, physically and sexually abused. It was difficult and disturbing to read. But overall the story was well told and as usual Dr. Brockton is professional and empathetic. Three and a half stars. ( )

A Body Farm Novel Dr. Bill Bass and Jon Jefferson (Jefferson Bass Novel #6 2012) ( )
  SmithfieldJones | Sep 18, 2016 |
Dr Bill Brockton, forensic pathologist, responds to a personal call for help from a former student now working in Tallahassee. Her sister has died – reportedly a suicide – but Angie St Claire has her doubts. His quick trip to help Angie turns into a much longer assignment when a wandering hound digs up an old skull – or two.

I really like this series. Brockton is a serious scientist, and heads the Department of Anthropology at the Univ of Tennessee in Knoxville. This is the site of the (in)famous Body Farm, where donated cadavers are studied to provide detailed information that will help law enforcement in determining manner, cause and time of death. He is cautious, deliberate and thorough in examining the bones that come his way. The writing team that makes up “Jefferson Bass” knows forensics and does a good job of providing sufficient detail without making this a science textbook.

However … I thought the double story line didn’t quite work here. I would just get caught up in one investigation, only to have that dropped in favor of the other. I’d be immersed in case #2 and then have to go back to case #1. The result, in this book, is that one of the story lines really suffered; the woman’s murder deserved a more thorough investigation in the book (as it would in real life). This is the sixth book in the series, and I wonder whether they were out of ideas to fully flesh out the plot. Still, the plot moves quickly and has enough twists and turns to still provide a surprise at the reveal.
