Book: The Body Farm (Dr. Kay Scarpetta, #5) by Patricia Cornwell

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?

Book: Bones of Betrayal by Jefferson Bass (Body Farm #4)

This book left me speechless. Clearly, my high school history class left a lot out.

Dr. Brockton is called to Oak Ridge to assist with removal of a body from a frozen pool. The victim turns out to be Leonard Novak, a scientist from the Oak Ridge facility of the Manhattan Project.

The autopsy takes a life-threatening turn for Dr. Garcia and Miranda. In a single moment, a small pebble, which turns out to be highly radioactive, changes their lives forever. As both get hit with radiation levels that are extremely high. Dr. Garcia got more exposure than anyone because the body was in the morgue for nearly 24 hours and he was exposed for over 10 hours. He also held the pebble in his hands. Miranda also held it with her fingers but only for seconds.

This book covers a lot of history regarding the Manhattan Project. It weaves a tale of murders, revenge, espionage, betrayal and lives destroyed.

Who killed Leonard Novak? What secret was he being blackmailed about? What was the radiation source that Miranda and Dr. Garcia were exposed to? Do they survive the radiations effects?
