Dr. Kay Scarpetta, consulting pathologist for the FBI Forensic Science Unit, must deal with the truly horrific as she seeks to understand the murder of an eleven-year-old girl in rural North Carolina. The details remind her of a serial killer who has eluded the unit for years. What is required is a series of grisly experiments at a little known facility called the Body Farm. Scarpetta must re-interpret some badly botched evidence and interpret the forensic hieroglyphics to reveal an answer that is as stunning as it is horrifying.
