Forensic anthropologist David Hunter is thrust into his first murder investigation on U.S. soil and his most devastating case yet. In the heat of a Tennessee summer, Dr. Hunter has come to Knoxville's legendary Body Farm, the infamous field laboratory where law enforcement personnel study real corpses. While there, he's called to a crime scene in a remote Smoky Mountain cabin, a scene as grisly as it is bizarre. Within days, Hunter knows hes dealing with a serial killer, someone intimately familiar with the intricacies of forensics. The killer keeps coming up with surprises: booby-trapping corpses, faking times of death, swapping bodies, finally turning his sights on Hunter himself.--B.I.P.

another fast-paced book by this writer. hard to put down. a little far fetched in the breadth of the crime.

Well written and an interesting insight into the world of forensic science, but I found the ending a bit too contrived in terms of the "mandatory book ending suspense scene" ...... though the killer's identity is a real surprise.

It's a good mystery book. Hunter is bit too introspective but otherwise the book creates tension and you can't really guess whodunnit.

When I first read the blurb for this book I thought I'd discovered a new author for me to devour. Although somewhat interesting in the technical details of forensic anthropology, it just didn't really grab me as much as I'd hoped.
