Jefferson Bass's Cut to the Bone, the long-awaited prequel to his New York Times bestselling mystery series, turns the clock back to reveal the Body Farm's creation--and Dr. Bill Brockton's deadly duel with a serial killer.

In the summer of 1992, Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton and Tennessee Senator Albert Gore begin their long-shot campaign to win the White House. In the sweltering hills of Knoxville at the University of Tennessee, Dr. Bill Brockton, the bright, ambitious young head of the Anthropology Department, launches an unusual--some would call it macabre--research facility, unlike any other in existence.

Brockton is determined to revolutionize the study of forensics to help law enforcement better solve crime. But his plans are derailed by a chilling murder that leaves the scientist reeling from a sense of d#65533;j#65533; vu. Followed by another. And then another: bodies that bear eerie resemblances to cases from Brockton's past.

But as the body count rises, the victims' fatal injuries grow more and more distinctive--a spiral of death that holds dark implications for Brockton...and everyone he holds dear.

a prequel to the Body Farm stories, which I didn't realize when I started to read this story. Interesting in how the Body Farm was started, and Dr Bill Brockton's beginning as a forensic investigator.

Jefferson Bass, duo authors produce well-written, suspenseful mysteries.. This time, unfortunately, they have also written from the murderer's point of view, which I really didn't like nor cared for. I wish they didn't do this; it turned my stomach, so I skipped through those parts.. That's my opinion; other people might feel differently.. I do recommend the mysteries written by Jefferson Bass..
