Renowned anthropologist Dr. Bill Brockton has spent his career surrounded by death at the Body Farm. Now he's being called upon to help solve a baffling puzzle in a remote mountain community. The mummified corpse of a young woman dead for thirty years has been discovered in a cave, the body bizarrely preserved and transformed by the environment's unique chemistry. But Brockton's investigation is threatening to open old wounds among an insular people who won't forget or forgive. And a long-buried secret prematurely exposed could inflame Brockton's own guilt—and the dangerous hostility of bitter enemies determined to see him fail . . . by any means necessary.
With Fascinating Insider Information on the Body Farm!

Investigation of the discovery of a woman's body, mummified after 30 years in a Tennessee cave, brings forensic anthropologist Bill Brockton of the Body Farm into conflict with inhabitants of a remote mountain community. The county's uncooperative sheriff and incompetent deputy threaten to derail the investigation, as do Brockton's personal demons-- lingering guilt over the death of his wife and the fury of a medical examiner whom Brockton opposes in court.
