I really am enjoying this series! The Devil's Bones has the usual engaging characters and situations, even bringing back some of the likable characters from the previous books. The banter is believable and the humor prevents the book from becoming too morbid. Although Brockton’s techniques and activities in his investigations don't always make the university attorney happy, they do keep me interested! Like the TV series Law and Order, some of the crimes are "ripped from the headlines" but this series tells the forensic science side of things, which I like very much. I learned a lot about crematoriums in this book, which I definitely found more interesting than I did when I read Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory. On to the next one!

It's best to read this series in order since there are important references and characters from past books. This third book in the series is very entertaining with some fascinating science introduced as usual. This one includes how bones react to fire and includes a scandal involving a crematorium that doesn't! Based slightly on the actual Georgia case where the crematorium was not cremating remains.

kept my attention. Hero Dr. Brockton's nemesis is after him for revenge. Meanwhile, Brockton also finds that a facility is scattering bodies instead of cremating them.
