Carved in Bone is the first book in the Body Farm mystery series by Jefferson Bass. It introduces Dr. Bill Brockton, anthropologist and founder of the University of Tennessee’s Body Farm, as stated on the book jacket, a place where “human corpses are left to the elements and every manner of decay is explored”. Wait, the stories are not so gruesome! Carved in Bone is “a richly atmospheric, superbly suspenseful, and magnificently rendered trip into the world of forensic science”. It’s a great mystery, a good page turner with wonderful characters and just enough bits of forensic science procedures to unlock a fascinating murder.
