Without Mercy: A Body Farm Novel
Dr. Bill Brockton has seen plenty in his career as a forensic anthropologist. His work has lead to killers of all types. A call to a crime scene in Cooke County, TN brings a murder unique in its brutality. A decomposing body is found tied up, a possible victim of torture. The victim is indistinguishable from the remains and no ID is available. Brockton, working with his longtime assistant, Miranda, uncovers possible hate crime characteristics in unwrapping a horrific method of murder. Brockton finds himself getting an education in the perverse world of hate groups, from the KKK to militia groups. Yet he can’t completely prove motive. He also has to contend with his assistant’s impending departure for a job with the FBI, a possible flirtation with his secretary, and a reappearance by a dreaded serial killer. Brockton is facing more insurmountable hurdles as time goes on. Which will kill him first?
Without Mercy is a page-crackling corker of a novel. The plot is fast moving, fun, and thrilling. The science inherent in Brockton’s job is never too far over the reader’s head, which keeps the book interesting from beginning to end. A great read from a great series!!
