Editorial Reviews

Erik Singer's voice is solid and steady as he gives listeners a strong picture of Dr. Bill Brockton, a medical anthropologist at the world-famous Body Farm. Bill is still grieving over his wife's death when an investigation of a horrific mutilation brings him into a relationship with Medical Examiner Jess Carter. Singer's narration becomes infused with the excitement of new love and increases its emotional levels when Jess is murdered and Bill is set up as the killer. Singer manages to keep two intertwined crimes straight and deliver forensics details lucidly while he gives voice to a steady stream of the hero's inner monologues and convincingly switches roles from hard-boiled cops to angry victims and even a caring transvestite.

Publisher's Summary

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 medical 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 gruesome Chattanooga death scene at the Body Farm, but a killer places another corpse at the site, putting Brockton's career and even his life in jeopardy. Soon Brockton is accused of the horrific new crime, and the once-beloved professor becomes an outcast. 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, raising powerful questions about the nature of justice, loyalty, honor, and evil. This astonishing novel confirms Jefferson Bass as one of our most talented authors of suspense.

Just OK

Held my attention, but very contrived. Worth hearing, but not highly recommended.
