Description

"[Bass is] the real deal."—Kathy Reichs

The sixth electrifying forensic mystery by author Jefferson Bass ("a fresh voice in the crime novel arena" —Seattle Post-Intelligencer), The Bone Yard is the most gripping installment yet in the New York Times bestselling Body Farm series. Called away from Tennessee's renowned Body Farm (the real life human decomposition laboratory around which these remarkable thrillers are based), Dr. Bill Brockton discovers the dark side of the Sunshine state when he's called in to investigate human remains found on the grounds of a Florida boys' reform school. Rich in authentic forensic detail and featuring a protagonist as involving as crime fiction's most popular medical examiners—including Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta, Karin Slaughter's Sara Linton, and Kathy Reichs's star forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan—The Bone Yard is unassailable evidence that this series "just keeps getting better" (Booklist).

        In Bass's uneven sixth forensic procedural featuring Dr. Bill Brockton (after The Bone Thief), Brockton, who's in charge of the Body Farm, a Tennessee research facility where cadavers are left to decay for research purposes, agrees to help a visiting Florida forensic analyst, Angie St. Claire, with a personal tragedy. St. Claire's sister has died of a shotgun blast to the head in Georgia, a death ruled a suicide by the local authorities, but St. Claire suspects her brother-in-law killed her sister. Brockton's efforts to preserve evidence that could support St. Claire's theory ends up taking a backseat to another puzzle, based on events at an actual Florida reform school, where boys were routinely physically abused. Realistic descriptions of forensic work compensate only in part for less than convincing action sequences. Bass is the writing team of Bill Bass, the real-life model for Brockton, and Jon Jefferson.

      • content: When a dog in rural Florida repeatedly brings home human bones, Dr. Bill Brockton, respected forensic anthropologist and head of the Body Farm, an anthropological research facility, must solve the mystery. He is soon led to a former reform school and its secret graveyard. Tom Stechschulte's Southern drawl and perfect pacing beautifully capture the intelligent, dedicated Dr. Bill. Stechschulte's talent is also on full display in his portrayal of the supporting characters. Especially good are his depictions of the Southern cracker sheriff and the grim, sadistic guard. The book is suspenseful and exciting--with interesting bits of forensics details. A.C.P. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine

        When a skull is found in the Florida woods and shallow graves then discovered on the grounds of a nearby reform school, since closed, who better to call in than the Body Farm's Dr. Bill Brockton? Some fans found last spring's The Bone Thief a bit diffuse, but the good doctor is still back with a 75,000-copy first printing.

        Somewhere along the way, the novels about forensic anthropologist and crime solver Bill Brockton have become worthy of mention in the same breath with Kathy Reichs Temperance Brennan mysteries. The series has always been skillfully written, but the most recent titles have been especially gripping. In the sixth, Brockton, a fictionalized version of his cocreator, Dr. Bill Bass, founder of the University of Tennessees world-famous Body Farm, travels to Florida to help out a colleague and winds up embroiled in a mystery involving the recently discovered skulls of children who may have been murdered a few decades ago. Bass and cowriter Jon Jefferson make a good team, with Bass scientific expertise nicely complementing Jeffersons background as a journalist, and fans of forensic-themed mystery fiction (Reichs, of course, and Patricia Cornwells and Beverly Connors) definitely should add the Brockton series to their reading lists.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2011, American Library Association.)

In this latest thriller from New York Times bestselling author Jefferson Bass, Dr. Bill Brockton discovers the dark side of the Sunshine state when he's called in to investigate human remains found on the grounds of a boys' reform school in Florida

The Bone Yard

The onset of summer brings predictably steamy weather to the Body Farm, Dr. Bill Brockton's human-decomposition research facility at the University of Tennessee. But Brockton's about to get more heat than he's bargained for when Angie St. Claire, a forensic analyst with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, asks him to help prove that her sister's death was not suicide, but murder.

Brockton's quick consulting trip takes a long, harrowing detour when bones begin turning up amid the pines and live oaks of the Florida panhandle. Two adolescent skulls–ravaged by time and animals, but bearing the telltale signs of lethal fractures–send Brockton, Angie, and Special Agent Stu Vickery on a. ....
