Flesh and Bone by Jefferson Bass
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A good book!! It kept me turning pages quickly. Dr. Bill Brockton, a forensic anthropologis, and Medical Examiner Jess Carter have worked together on a number of cases and are on the verge of developing a romantic relationship. Brockton is director of the University of Tennessee's "Body Farm" and is a professor at the college. He inadvertently upsets a student with his rant against creationism, and is about to be sued by the student's parents. Meanwhile, he and Carter are investigating the murder of a drag queen. One morning Brockton arrives at the Body Farm to discover a dead body that's not supposed to be there, and Brockton is accused as the killer.
I liked the characters, and the plot had several good twists. There were some gory bits, but nothing you can't skip over if you don't like those kinds of details.
