The Bone Thief by Jefferson Bass

'The Bone Thief' by Jefferson Bass:
Dr. Bill Brockton runs the ‘Body Farm’ where donated bodies are laid out in plots, carefully kept track of by his assistant and studied for different affects on decomposition. Burt DeVriess, ‘Grease’, a defense attorney calls Dr. Brockton to examine a body that is being exhumed for a paternity case. The only problem is, when the body is exhumed, it is obviously missing some pieces!

Black market body parts are a big business. At least that is what the FBI is using to convince Dr. Brockton to go undercover to help them find who is buying and selling these body parts. After opening several other graves, the signs point to a funeral home and Brockton reluctantly agrees to be a part of the sting.

All the while, Dr. Brockton is trying to reconcile with a former flame who isn’t at all what she appears and, may have a bigger hold on him than Brockton ever imagined! He is also faced with several ethical decisions one of which could jeopardize a man’s life and could be losing a valuable asset in his assistant.

This is a thrilling addition to the Body Farm series. Once you start it, you won’t put it down!
