Description

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.

Narration Issues

Would you listen to Flesh and Bone again? Why?

No. I would rather read it. The narrator spoke in monotones.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot was intriguing, well woven, and the ending was superb.

What didn’t you like about Erik Singer’s performance?

The narrator sounded like he had a terminal case of ennui.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Fresh forgets; bone remembers.

Any additional comments?

I would love to see the series turned into a film franchise.

excellent story line, but....

The story is great, love all the books from Dr. Bill Bass. Two related to the Body Farm, and two other fictions co-written by Bass and Jefferson. All the stories, whether the biography of the author or the fictional dectective Dr. Brockton are really intriging, and interesting, captured my total attention. However, unlike the other narrators from the other books, this particular narrator sounded too young for the charactor, Dr. Bill Brockton's charactor is about 58 years old. The narrator sounded no more than 30 years old, with an heavy southern accent, this made the charactor less convincing than the other books.

great read

Very good story with a few twist and turns. Just the right length. Not too much extra that didn't add any thing to the story as some books can. Enjoyed it very much.

too much music between chapters.

The music distracts from the story. It's otherwise it is a great story and narration.

part 2 of an impressive crime and science series

being a medical doctor myself, I love reading and (listening to) the forensic science crime series by Kathy Reichs, Patricia Cornwell and Jefferson Bass. In the Jefferson / Bass duo Mr. Bass is actually a forensic anthropologist in real life and the founder of the body farm in Tennessee. His stories are while not based on real life stories, based on real life facts and make for excellent reads....
