" Bass is] the real deal."
The sixth electrifying forensic mystery by author Jefferson Bass ("a fresh voice in the crime novel arena" --Seattle Post-Intelligencer), The Bone Yard is the most gripping installment yet in the New York Times bestselling Body Farm series. Called away from Tennessee's renowned Body Farm (the real life human decomposition laboratory around which these remarkable thrillers are based), Dr. Bill Brockton discovers the dark side of the Sunshine state when he's called in to investigate human remains found on the grounds of a Florida boys' reform school. Rich in authentic forensic detail and featuring a protagonist as involving as crime fiction's most popular medical examiners--including Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta, Karin Slaughter's Sara Linton, and Kathy Reichs's star forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan--The Bone Yard is unassailable evidence that this series "just keeps getting better" (Booklist).
