Disclaimer: A free copy of this book was received from Amazon Vine in exchange for an honest review.    The Bone Thief by Jefferson Bass is the second Body Farm novel I have read, and I'm sad to say it is just not any better than the first. Jefferson Bass, a composite of Jon Jefferson and Dr. Bill Bass, have joined the growing glut of authors cashing in on the CSI craze by writing about forensic anthropologists and/or medical examiners or pathologists, however Kathy Reichs, Karin …

This is my first book by Jefferson Bass (actually a pair of authors, Dr. Bill Bass and Jon Jefferson). When I began this book, it sounded like a story about grave robbing. I didn't find it all that interesting in the beginning, but it definitely got interesting later! It turns out to be a story about the (mostly illegal) ways in which bodies or body parts are stolen for purposes such as biomedical testing and companies who train surgeons to perform new surgeries.       The story's …

For some reason, I've never read any of the Body Farm novels by the team of Dr. Bill Bass and Jon Jefferson (hence, the author pen name of Jefferson Bass).

The top -notch team of Dr.Bill Bass, who founded the Body Farm, and Jon Jefferson, a crackerjack journalist, writing as Jefferson Bass does not let you down in this interesting, literate and informative Body Farm novel. In the event you are not familiar with the Body Farm, a tract of 2.5 acres funded by the University of Tennessee had been designated under Bass's direction to document the progression of decay of human bodies. In forensic science investigators need to know when the person in question …

FULL OF SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION AND RIFE WITH SUSPENSE
   To date the topnotch team of Dr. Bill Bass and Jon Jefferson writing as Jefferson Bass has brought us a number of forensic thrillers, Bones Of Betrayal (2009), The Devil's Bones (2008), Flesh and Bone (2007). Each is solidly based on accurate forensic science, well plotted, and chillingly rendered. Precisely what readers would come to expect from Bass who is known throughout the world for his expertise as a forensic anthropologist and founder of the University of Tennessee's Body Farm. …
