The Body Farm: Scarpetta 5 (Kay Scarpetta) Kindle Edition
Little Emily Steiner left a church meeting late one afternoon and strolled toward home along a lakeside path; a week later, her nude body was discovered, bound in blaze-orange duct tape. Called by the North Carolina authorities, forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta recognizes similarities to the gruesome work of a serial killer who has long eluded the FBI But as she tries to make sense of the evidence, she is left with questions that lead her to the Body Farm, a little known research facility in Tennessee where, with the help of some grisly experiments, she might discover the answer.
It is Scarpetta alone who can interpret the forensic hieroglyphics that eventually reveal a solution to the case as staggering as it is horrifying. But she must also endeavor to help her niece, Lucy, who is embroiled in controversy at Quantico. And Scarpetta, too, is vulnerable, as she opens herself to the first physical and emotional bond she has felt in far too long a time. Tenacious and brilliant, tender and gentle, this is Scarpetta even more realized and poignant than we’ve seen her before—in a stunning achievement from a bestselling author at the peak of her powers.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
When Kay, Pete and Benton are called in to help the police in this small town, things take an unexpected turn.
It's well written, with excellent characters and a very chilling story line...I'm really looking forward to "From Potters Field."

Tick tock… The Boogie man, the Body Farm, the CIA, the just, the brave, the altruistic, the hedonistic, the sordid agent, the furtive lovers. Time is fleeing, some are falling, others failing, others dying, some stumbling, others thriving.
A sting of initial suspicion skilfully injects the reader with an almost intolerable tension. Friendship is tested to the limit. I read this book twice every couple of years since it was published. The first paragraph is my interpretation of one of Dr Scarpetta’s discussions.
Dr Kay Scarpetta seems so normal whilst being very clever and extremely brave, so always routing for her to find the answers keeing her awake at night.
Not too gruesome, and intellgent story telling!
This is why I love to read. Going to buy books 5 & 6 right now.
