Book Review: Devil's Bones

Title The Devil's Bones: A Novel
Jefferson Bass
Rating ****

Third in the Body Farm series. Dr. Bill Brockton is trying to solve various cases with his forensic science. Unfortunately, the man who tried to frame him for murder in the last book and is determined to kill him escapes, and Brockton and those close to him are in danger.

This was a good book, though I think the second one is the strongest in ther series so far. I really like this series, more than I expected, due in large part to how much I like the character of Bill Brockton. One guesses that this character is based on that of Bill Bass, the real-life co-author who has the same job as the character Brockton. Some of the stories in the series probably come from real life as well. Recommended.
