The Body Farm by Patricia Cornwell
Kay Scarpetta is back, consulting forensic pathologist for the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit, in her grittiest and most compelling case yet. In rural North Carolina, the brutal murder of eleven-year-old Emily Steiner has shaken a small town. But more distrubing are the details of the crime, chillingly reminiscent of the handiwork of a serial killer who has eluded the unit for years. Into this volatile atmosphere comes Scarpetta's ingenious, rebellious niece Lucy, an FBI intern with a promising future in Quantico's computer engineering facility - until she is accused of a shocking security violation. While coming to terms with Lucy, Kay must conduct a grisly forensic investigation at a clandestine research facility in Tennessee known as The Body Farm. There she will find more answers to Emily Steiner's murder - and evidence that paints a picture of a crime more horrifying than she imagined... Full Synopsis
