An interesting weaving together of three murders. Lots of knowledge is passed on and the experiments at the body farm are always fascinating.

I didn't like this book quite as much as the first (and I missed the second) only because there was the odd bit that pushed the limits of my belief or scientific understanding. That being said, those bits were relatively small.

Even though there is gore, blood, incineration and decomposing corpses the reading is easy and it is not too gruesome for the squeamish. I have heard it referred to as CSI-lite and I like that. Espeically because I know that I will learn something about forensics as I know I can trust the author's knowledge.
