"The forensic thriller meets a formidable slice of history....A riveting mystery with an intricately emotional conclusion."
--Washington Post

Bones of Betrayal is the fourth heart-racing "Body Farm" thriller from the world's top forensic anthropologist. Kathy Reichs calls author Jefferson Bass, "the real deal," and his hero Bill Brockton has already taken his rightful place alongside Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta and the investigators on TV's "C.S.I." In Bones of Betrayal, a hideous murder has links that connect it to World War Two's Manhattan Project and the development of the atomic bomb--adding a fascinating historical element that enriches an already superior crime series.
