Is Temple Gault back? The murder assigned to Dr. Kay Scarpetta would certainly make you think so. This time an eleven year old girl has been murdered.
Lucy is now an intern with the FBI and this coincides with Kay deciding to be a consultant to them. But nothing is going smoothly. She falls in love with Benton Wesley, but there’s a catch, he’s married. Neither of them care about that fact. She’s constantly worried about Lucy
Marino is still surly and very jealous of Kay and Benton. The title is The Body Farm but it’s only brought in towards the end. We do meet the person who runs the body farm though. In real life he co-writes as Jefferson Bass.
With everything going on (it’s a very busy book) I had a little trouble following all the way to the end.
Does Kay solve the murder? Is it Temple Gault? Does she continue with Benton? Do she and Lucy come to an understanding? Does Marino get some self control?
