The fifth installment of the Body Farm series, Dr. Bill Brockton has been called in on a routine case, to exhume a body and obtain a bone sample for a DNA paternity test. But when the coffin is opened, Brockton is stunned to see that the corpse is missing some of its bones. Soon Brockton finds himself drawn into the dangerous business of black market body parts when the FBI recruits him to bring down the postmortem chop shop-using corpses from the Body Farm as bait in an undercover sting operation. In addition, Brockton struggles to help his friend Eddie Garcia deal with the loss of his hands due to his exposure a near-lethal dose of radioactivity. I found the plot interesting--though it had much more medical detail than previous installments. I did however feel that the Gracia secondary plot was extended a bit too long. I found the Bones of Betrayal a better read. 3 1/2 out of 4 stars.
