Anthropologist Dr. Bill Brockton founded Tennessee's world-famous Body Farm—a small piece of land where corpses are left to decay in order to gain important forensic information. Now, in the wake of a shocking crime in nearby Chattanooga, he's called upon by Jess Carter—the rising star of the state's medical examiners—to help her unravel a murderous puzzle. But after re-creating the death scene at the Body Farm, Brockton discovers his career, reputation, and life are in dire jeopardy when a second, unexplained corpse appears in the grisly setting.
Accused of a horrific crime—transformed overnight from a respected professor to a hated and feared pariah—Bill Brockton will need every ounce of his formidable forensic skills to escape the ingeniously woven net that's tightening around him . . . and to prove the seemingly impossible: his own innocence.

Erik Singer's voice is solid and steady as he gives listeners a strong picture of Dr. Bill Brockton, a medical anthropologist at the world-famous Body Farm. Bill is still grieving over his wife's death when an investigation of a horrific mutilation brings him into a relationship with Medical Examiner Jess Carter. Singer's narration becomes infused with the excitement of new love and increases its emotional levels when Jess is murdered and Bill is set up as the killer. Singer manages to keep two intertwined crimes straight and deliver forensics details lucidly while he gives voice to a steady stream of the hero's inner monologues and convincingly switches roles from hard-boiled cops to angry victims and even a caring transvestite.
