Publisher's Summary

There is a patch of ground in Tennessee dedicated to the science of death, where human remains lie exposed to be studied for their secrets. The real-life scientist who founded the "Body Farm" has broken cold cases and revolutionized forensics...and now he spins an astonishing tale inspired by his own experiences.

Renowned anthropologist Dr. Bill Brockton has spent his career surrounded by death at the Body Farm. Now he's being called upon to help solve a baffling puzzle in a remote mountain community. The mummified corpse of a young woman dead for 30 years has been discovered in a cave, the body bizarrely preserved and transformed by the environment's unique chemistry. But Brockton's investigation is threatening to open old wounds among an insular people who won't forget or forgive. And a long-buried secret prematurely exposed could inflame Brockton's own guilt - and the dangerous hostility of bitter enemies determined to see him fail...by any means necessary.

Sexist smut!

This book is so sexist! He has something disgusting to say about every female character except his wife. He must think all females in his life want to jump his bones. I couldn't get past the middle. I tried and tried but it turned my stomach. I am in the field of anthropology and am well aware of the sexism around me but it is shoved in your face here. He didn't even entertain the idea that the deceased could be wearing her own dog tags! Not to mention they could serve the purpose they were created for and identify her. Must be a father or boyfriend or husband. Ugh. Don't bother with this trash, sexism is as old as this author. Get with the times.

I love the forensic detail and cultural anthro.mix

Loved it. The Dr.B character is so easy to love and I wanted to know what was around the next turn in the road. Good narration.
