""It's quite a mystery, isn't it? I mean, how do you burn someone to death in public, and not have anyone notice?""

Spontaneous human combustion is a bizarre phenomenon, but according to published accounts, it happens. Could that be what occurred here? Or is it murder?

Recommends it for: Fans of the series, Kathy Reichs etc.
See my other reviews of the series, not much to add.
Far out idea, a little more believable for me, this time.
Ending ok, though all in all again 3.5 stars rounded up to 4.
Bought this and 4 others (one of it I already owned) as an ebook Omnibus "Season 2", will read them with distance between the books, so as not to spoil it, as they are sometimes a bit too much based on a formula/framework. Though I still think, there should be more books, going into the world we have today, with Wifi, tablets an

Enjoyable--a crime novel about someone who can cause a person(s) to burst into flame. Made you think. First read from this author. I will be reading some of his other works.

The bad guy is a little far fetched but I am still a sucker for the series.

Jenna Blake has just turned nineteen. As a student at Somerset University and a pathology assistant to the county medical examiner, Jenna doesn't have much time to devote to her crumbling social life. What little time she does have nearly disappears when an urgent and disturbing case comes into the M.E.'s office. Two people have recently burst into flame and burned alive in front of lots of witnesses with no obvious cause. Jenna and the medical examiner, Dr. Slikowski or "Slick", are attempting ...more

honestly i read this book so long ago I can't remember anything about it other then I absolutely loved it. I searched for the past 5 years to find this book. All i could remember about it was bones on the cover of the book and something about spontaneous combustion. This is definitely the next book I am going to read. By the way I graduated in 2006. I read this book while in middle school. I hope I still love it when I finish.

Very good book. Even tho there were a few mistakes with the medical parts, it was a very nice book to read.

This might seem weird but I am a teenager and I don't like to read at all, but I found this book really good with the constant action and death around every page. It is a book that will keep you wanting to turn the page and never stop.
