Bones of Betrayal Publication date: February, 2009
Bones of Betrayal is the fourth heart-racing “Body Farm” thriller from the world’s top forensic anthropologist. Kathy Reichs calls author Jefferson Bass, “the real deal,” and his hero Bill Brockton has already taken his rightful place alongside Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta and the investigators on TV’s “C.S.I.”
In Bones of Betrayal, a hideous murder has links that connect it to World War Two’s Manhattan Project and the development of the atomic bomb—adding a fascinating historical element that enriches an already superior crime series.
If You Like the "Bones" TV Series, You'll Love This.
I am a huge fan of the television series "Bones," and when I saw Kathy Reichs' (author of the Temperance Brennan novels) endorsement of BONES OF BETRAYAL, I knew I had to read this book. BONES OF BETRAYAL is the fourth installment in the Body Farm series by Jefferson Bass. I have not previously read the other three books in this series and had some concern about starting at book four. However, this book stands on its own very well, with only mild, well explained references to previous stories. With a story based in forensic anthropology, the birth of atomic science, and a mysterious murder, BONES OF BETRAYAL is a clear winner.
“The forensic thriller meets a formidable slice of history in Jefferson Bass’s impressive new novel. In addition to being a riveting mystery with an intricately emotional conclusion, Bones of Betrayal bears witness to the past with great respect for the long shadow it casts.”
