New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell brings back Kay Scarpetta, consulting forensic pathologist for the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit, in her grittiest and most compelling novel. In rural North Carolina, the brutal murder of eleven-year-old Emily Steiner has shaken a small town. But more disturbing are the details of the crimes, chillingly reminiscent of the handiwork of a serial killer who has eluded the unit for years. Into this volatile atmosphere comes Scarpetta's ingenious, rebellious niece Lucy, an FBI intern with a promising future in Quantico's computer engineering facility--until she is accused of a shocking security violation. While coming to terms with Lucy, Kay must conduct a grisly forensic investigation at a clandestine research facility in Tennessee known as the Body Farm. There she will find more answers to Emily Steiner's murder--and evidence that paints a picture of a crime more horrifying than she imagined . . .

I didn't like this book as well as I've liked the previous books in the series, by far. I guess my greatest frustration lies with the issues I seem to always have with Marino. How on earth did someone as ignorant as Marino seems to be ever become a detective??? There was so little logic in so much of the book. Scarpetta seemed to be the only one in the book able to figure anything out, which was silly. She is a ME, not a psychic! Ugh. I hope the From Potter's Field is better than this book was!

Very good example of Cornwell's writing. It's okay, but nothing memorable

One new case solved, one ongoing case. Suspenseful and unpredictable, the reader is thrown around and become emotionally invested with the characters

This is the first book of very many of Patricia Cornwells that I have enjoyed. I read it many years ago and it still comes to mind vividly because of the impression it left on me. It was eerily realistic and at the same time shocking. A true page turner!
