Book Description


See all titles by Jefferson Bass.

When an unidentified body is pulled from a murky swimming pool in Oak Ridge, TN, police call Body Farm founder Bill Brockton for help. With his graduate assistant, Miranda Lovelady, Brockton determines that the elderly victim didn't drown; he died of radiation poisoning.As they begin to search for answers, the forensic detectives discover the victim was Dr. Leonard Novak, a renowned Manhattan Project physicist and the designer of a plutonium reactor used to create the first atomic bombs in 1945.

Struggling to cut through the Gordian knot of Manhattan Project history, Brockton finds a charming and utterly unreliable guide to help him wade through wartime Oak Ridge: 90-year-old Beatrice Montgomery. As his witness drifts between lucidity and dementia, Brockton isn't sure if what Beatrice reveals is fact or fancy, history or myth.Unfortunately, she's the only one who can help him solve the case.

But what Beatrice cannot - or will not - tell is whether her tale is true or false - or something far darker and more complex.

Jefferson Bass is the writing team of Dr. Bill Bass and Jon Jefferson. Dr. Bass, a world-renowned forensic anthropologist, founded the University of Tennessee's Anthropology Research Facility -- the Body Farm -- a quarter-century ago.
