My Review of Cut to the Bone by Jefferson Bass

This was an easy-reading, interesting enough, crime thriller written by Jon Jefferson and Dr. Bill Bass. Part of The Body Farm collection, this story focuses on Dr. Bill Brockton, an anthropologist at the University of Tennessee, who assists with forensic fieldwork when he’s not teaching classes. Sheriff Jim Cotterell, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agent Wellington Harrison Meffert II, Bubba Hardknot, to most people, Tyler Wainwright, Brockton’s graduate assistant, and Detective Kitteredge round out the main cast of characters in the story. Oh, there is one more, Janelle Mayfield, the one that gets away.

CutBoneYou know from the beginning who the killer is but you have to read further to understand his motivation. The authors develop the stories around the victims so you feel sorry for them or close to them before they face their last moments. Mayfield escapes and helps the police find the killer.

This is a quick read (the authors don’t bog the story down with a lot of forensic anthropology details) and you’ll like the laid-back personality of Dr. Brockton.
