Dr Bill Brockton has lost the woman he loved. Garland Hamilton - the killer and a former colleague - is behind bars and Bill is preparing to testify against him.

At the body farm, he is working on a case that involves fire. His aim is to prove that Mary Latham was killed by her husband and then set alight, rather than her husband's version, which is that she committed suicide.

Then his lawyer sends him what are supposed to be the "cremains" of his beloved aunt. However, both lawyer and Bill are suspicious. An investigation proves the remains are anything but human and Bill stumbles on a truth too horrific to believe.

Then Bill hears that Hamilton has escaped from police custody.

Bill, and everyone around him, is sure that Hamilton has only one thing in mind.

He wants Bill dead and will stop at nothing to get his revenge.

This is a novel full of plots and sub-plots, but the one thing that pulls them together is the hot Knoxville summer and the fire.

This latest Jefferson Bass installation of the body farm series is gripping and full of suspense.

However, I have to wonder where he is going with all this internal angst that Bill is experiencing. Surely it's time the man has some happiness in his life. - Meneesha Govender
