Without Mercy: A Body Farm Novel Reviews
Fans of the Body Farm books will be delighted to welcome the tenth in this suspenseful yet very real series which is based on the real Body Farm laboratory at the University of Tennessee which was founded by forensic anthropologist Dr. Bill Bass. Joining journalist and science writer Jon Jefferson the two write under the name Jefferson Bass and follow the adventures of the character they created, forensic anthropologist Bill Brockton who devotes his time to bringing killers to justice. Without Mercy presents one of his most challenging cases as well as a threat to everyone he holds dear when Nick Satterfield, a maniacal killer put away by Brockton escapes, and is determined to revenge his incarceration. The case baffling Brockton is merely a pile of bones without a skull which was found in a remote county. With the help of other specialists Brockton and his graduate assistant, Miranda, determine that the victim was a young male pf Middle Eastern ancestry. Once they discover his identity they begin to believe that his death was a hate crime, that he was a Muslim mercilessly tied to a tree, made to eat pork products and smeared with bacon to lure the bears that would kill him. Now that Satterfield is on the loose Brockton becomes the bait as well as his son, his daughter-in-law, his grandsons, and even Miranda. Realizing that the police and those he works for cannot protect him from a psychopathic killer Brockton may well have to take the law into his own hands. Can a man who has always believed in justice and mercy do this? While for this reader the ending seemed a tad improbable Without Mercy is a worthy addition to this popular series. Enjoy!
I have read all of Jefferson Bass’ books and loved them, but i stopped reading this due to the biased political propaganda that was thrown around. If i want to read that kind of stuff I would pick a different genre of book. I’m a nurse practitioner and a teacher and former Georgia and present Tennessee resident. Both states voted for Donald Trump. Both states are filled with great people whose families have been in them for many generations. After describing the terrible conditions of living in Cooke County, how could you possibly ever mention the term white privilege? You need to visit the remote extremely poor white rural areas of GA and TN and think again.
Dr Bass and Mr Jefferson, together have created yet another excellent novel. Having read all previous "Body Farm Novels" this one was on par. The subject in line with current times in the USA and suspenseful from page one! The depths that hate goes to in the USA is horrible - the country that loves to hate for various reasons since its founding. How far these hate groups, supremest groups, separatist groups etc will go and how evil their methods. Thank you Dr Bass and Mr Jefferson for sharing this novel and exposing the horrors done by haters in the USA.I always appreciate the forensic details presented and find several characters familiar enough to shed a tear when they "die"This is an excellent story
I have thoroughly enjoyed most of the Body Farm's books written by Jefferson Bass. I have been looking forward to his new book, however I was disappointed and almost gave up reading it. Too much scientific jargon and little story. When I started Part Two, the story kicked into high gear! I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.
I have been reading body farm books for many years and always enjoyed them. Unfortunately, I had to force myself to finish this one. The addition of all the political discourse took away from the plot. I hope Mr. Bass can avoid politics in subsequent novels.
Book okay, however moved slow and too much time spent on medical jargon. I just wanted to get to the story and not spend so much time on words that meant nothing to the average reader
