WHEN A DECOMPOSING BODY IS DISCOVERED IN A SHALLOW GRAVE

It’s the second-to-last day of archaeological field school.Dr.Temperance Brennan’s graves are working on a site of prehistoric graves on Dewees,a barrier island north f Charleston,south Carolina,when a decomposing body is uncovered in a shallow grave of a lonely beach.The skeleton is articulated,the bone fresh and the vertebrae still connected by soft tissue; the remains are encased in rotted fabric and toppled by wisps of pale,blood hair- a recent burial,and a case Tempe must take.Dental remains and skeletal gender and race indicators suggest that the deceased is a middle-aged white male but who was he? Why was he buried in a clandestine grave? And what does the unusual vertical hairline fracture of the sixth cervical signify? While Tempe is trying to pike together the evidence,her personal life is thrown into turmoil.When a bullet-intended,for her-puts Tempe’s estranged husband Pete in hospital,her unexpectedly emotional response complicates her on-off relationship with Detective Andrew Ryan.Before long,another body is discovered-and Tempe finds herself drawn deeper into a shocking and chilling investigation,set to challenge her entire view of humanity.
