Still suffering effects of a near fatal attack, David Hunter has returned to the Body Farm in Tennessee, the world-famous facility where he learned his trade as a forensic anthropologist, desperate to prove that he's still up to the task. But while there a grisly discovery is made in a holiday cabin in the hills--a body, bound and tortured, decomposed beyond recognition. Fingerprints found at the scene seem to identify the killer, but it soon becomes clear that nothing about this case is quite as it seems. Despite misgivings, Hunter is intrigued and agrees to help an old friend and colleague on the investigation. There are those who resent his presence, however, and Hunter begins to wonder if his entire trip hasn't been a mistake.

another fast-paced book by this writer. hard to put down. a little far fetched in the breadth of the crime.

Well written and an interesting insight into the world of forensic science, but I found the ending a bit too contrived in terms of the "mandatory book ending suspense scene" ...... though the killer's identity is a real surprise.

It's a good mystery book. Hunter is bit too introspective but otherwise the book creates tension and you can't really guess whodunnit.

When I first read the blurb for this book I thought I'd discovered a new author for me to devour. Although somewhat interesting in the technical details of forensic anthropology, it just didn't really grab me as much as I'd hoped.
