The forensic thriller meets a formidable slice of history .A riveting mystery with an intricately emotional conclusion. Washington PostBones 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 connectitto 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.
“Bones of Betrayal has more than its share of twists, turns, and red herrings....Wartime Oak Ridge proves nearly as atmospheric a crime scene as Sam Spade’s San Francisco or Philip Marlowe’s L.A.”
-Wilmington Star News
“This series...just keeps getting better. [Bones of Betrayal] features both the most compelling story and the best portrayal yet of Brockton, who has completed the transition from fictional representation of coauthor Bass to fully realized protagonist.”
“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.”
