The mystery part was pretty good and the forensics information was interesting. The Body Farm wasn't really a major part of the story which is what I thought this was going to be about. The story ends up following a couple of cases. One is court case that was botched by a shoddy autopsy, the second is a body found in a cave. This second body has been entirely encased in adipocere, the solidified body fat that was left as the flesh decomposed. Creepy! I also enjoyed the eastern Tennessee setting. I don't know much about the hills of Tennessee so it was quite a lot of fun imagining the characters and accents and places.
Will definitely be looking for the second in the series.
