Investigations soon uncover that the remains are of two local boys, who had been reported missing just a week previously. It transpires that the pair were part of an illegal rave that occurred in the council flat, and that during the rave, they were involved in the rape of a teenage girl, JoJo Collins, who subsequently attempted to commit suicide and is now in a coma.
Eve believes the pair were killed before the explosion, and soon, JoJo's father Peter, an ex-army officer, comes under suspicion from Hale, as it is discovered that the explosion was caused by an incendiary device.
Eve believes, however, that JoJo's sister Natasha and her boyfriend Nathan may have more to do with the deaths than meets the eye, and must use her scientific skills to prove it.
The discovery of a hand in the grounds of an estate belonging to wealthy businessman Harold Penton leads Hale to Sam Villiers, an employee of Penton's who disappeared three weeks ago.
Hale questions Penton's right-hand man Jimmy West, as he believes he holds the key to finding Sam's body. Using his instinct, Hale hires Eve and the team to investigate a vegetable patch, and they find the body to which the hand belongs.
However, after running tests on the body, Eve discovers that it is not the body of Villiers, but that of his boyfriend, Jason Quinn.
Hale investigates a local drop-in centre where Villiers and Quinn regularly visited, and discovers that not only are both of them addicted to drugs, but have been remanded for soliciting men in the past.
After some investigation, it transpires that Penton is the man behind the drop-in centre, and that the possible murderer is Dr.
Thomas Grove, a friend of Penton's whom he hires to visit the drop-in centre to look after the youngsters. Eve soon discovers that Villiers is still alive, and has simply been living in solitude.
When the body of thirty-five-year-old Connor Ryan is pulled from waters on the coast, Eve and the team are called to investigate when Hale suspects that the events surrounding his death are suspicious, and warrant an investigation.
The team discover Ryan was part of a three man crew who had been on a diving expedition, to recover soil samples from the sea bed, and that the possible cause of death might have been lack of oxygen, caused by a faulty oxygen tank.
As the body shrivels, it leaks out fluids so rich in nitrogen that it can kill off the surrounding grass and leave the area black.
Afterward, maggots and bacteria will have consumed all of the flesh within a few weeks. And in addition to helping researchers determine the specifics of the very decomposition process described above, body farms have allowed scientists to learn a number of things that are both fascinating and useful in police investigations.
For example, researchers have developed better time-of-death estimates based on gases being emitted from the body, which are released in a particular pattern over time.
Breakthroughs made at body farms can even help authorities find missing bodies. Body farm scientists have determined the specific kinds of chemicals that accumulate around dead human bodies and, if you can find those chemicals, perhaps you can find the body.
Furthermore, researchers have used body farms to understand the sort of food chain, called a necrobiome, that comes into play when a human body decomposes.
For example, the bacteria that feed on the body can attract certain insects, which become prey for mice, which become prey for creatures like snakes, and so on.
After this look at body farms, discover more about what happens to your body when you die. Then, check out the most interesting facts about the human body.
Enter The Disturbing World Of Body Farms. Another good part of thi Final Thoughts 4 of 5 stars to Patricia Cornwell 's fifth book in the Kay Scarpetta series, The Body Farm , published in Another good part of this book is the development of Scarpetta's relationship with her niece, Lucy.
Lucy's now 21 and supposed to be an adult; however, her behaviors are still somewhat immature. I like getting to know the character more, even though she isn't too likable at this point.
Detective Pete Marino is prominent again, and you want to love him As Scarpetta finds different body parts all over the place, she knows she's close to meeting her match.
The cleverness and complexity in this book makes it one of the better ones. It's still early on in the series before the books get too "governmental" and "formal," in regard to Scarpetta's career.
The games being played are quite amusing and scary. Given the creepiness of the killer's plans, this is another fine entry in the series. About Me For those new to me or my reviews I write A LOT.

From the misnomered title A 'body farm' is only in a small portion of the book to the implausible plot--how did this get past editors???
For starters Only 3 people work at this TOP SECRET section of the FBI and 2 are dismissed because of malfeasance??? One has a dubious past and 'lied' on her application???
Come on!!! Our protagonist easily found that out, but NOBODY from the bureau vetted this crooked employee? Give me a break! I'm willing to suspend a bit of logic b Arrgh!
I'm willing to suspend a bit of logic but I am NOT willing to check my brain at the door!! There are many other problems with the storyline Scarpetta returns to the crime scene at night and 'forgets' a flashlight???
Her partner may be in grave danger and she says NOTHING???? A child is missing and NOBODY thinks to search her home--but Kay does?
Scarpetta enters a suspected killer's home without a gun, yet she sleeps with one next to her bed at all times?
Sorry I wasted my time reading this View all 7 comments. Mar 12, C. Kay Scarpetta's fifth novel, published in Her dear niece's age has been hastily augmented to twenty-one.
I was certain Lucy was under twelve in their introduction. I dislike violence, crime thrillers, forensics, even sad or tragic novels.
I abhor reading about horror or grief. The personal perspective of Kay's teammates, family, friends, and my familiarity with them make all her series exceptions.
When one wants content that is more serious than light mysteries, stepping past the lines of non-grotesque, standard adult mysteries occurs.
Patricia Cornwell's novels are a successful effort in higher tolerance. I ask authors to cease hurling cat deaths into fiction.
This will always deduct a star but especially with the horrific addition so pointless and arbitrary to the novel. The main victim had died and that depraved act could not torment her.
Besides the animal death deal-breaker and difficulty I had, believing the murderer identity and motive against feline and humans; the pace was fast and multifaceted.
I traversed pages in a rush of interest that never waned. An additional, necessary criticism is that a major plot point and suspect was untouched and unexplained.
If it was a red herring, a major series criminal should not have been used. That criminal's plot, pertaining to Lucy's FBI training, suggests that his unwarranted appearance sets up a succeeding novel.
The heroine having an affair rattles my respect; no matter what the state of her paramour's marriage might be. Although his wife is a seldom-appearing cardboard figure, she is highly likeable.
It seems I come to three stars anyway. The pace, complexity, and personal urgency were written well, keeping emotions and interest high.
I look forward to Patricia's next novel, after my habitual break to absorb other tones of fiction and non-fiction. View all 5 comments. Oct 01, Jaksen rated it really liked it Shelves: mystery-series.
Entertaining read, esp. And clubs and hearts, too. That's where she excels as a writer: she knows her stuff. In this one the MC, Dr. Kay Scarpetta, is helping out on a case involving the death of a young girl - kidnapped and found dead days later on a fairly isolated trail.
There are clues a'plenty, but none of them seem to go together, so it's up to the investigators, with Kay in assistance, to put them together Entertaining read, esp.
There are clues a'plenty, but none of them seem to go together, so it's up to the investigators, with Kay in assistance, to put them together.
This is one story I hadn't a clue as to what was going on - and Cornwell does scatter the clues around if you know where to look I DID NOT.
To bungle up the evidence further, one of the lead investigators is found dead in his house - with parts of the child in his freezer.
Oh yes, I said that, but it's not so much a spoiler as it happens early on in the book. As Kay struggles to untangle this mess, she's also dealing with a messy family situation as well.
Oh, and there are a couple of men messing up Kay's emotional life, too. Now I like these books, but I do feel that's it in interpersonal relationships - and dialogue - which is the weakest part of any of the Scarpetta books.
Or maybe it's just that I find the lead - Kay herself - so cold. Not that a forensic expert should be all warm and bubbly, but wow, she needs to lighten up a bit.
She's like a female John Wayne: take no prisoners, don't ever smile, and walk like you own the place.
And I do wish Kay would use her forceful personality more when it comes to dealing with her narcissistic sister.
Kay takes it and takes it and takes it Anyhow, that's my single criticism of the series: me don't like Kay much.
But what Kay gets mixed-up in - and the final resolution of this book, that was great. Four stars. View 1 comment. As other reviewers have noted, the title 'The Body Farm' is a bit misleading since it doesn't come into the plot until near the end, and then it is as a sidebar, but its graphic descriptive inclusion and the good Dr.
Kay Scarpetta's enthusiastic promotion for donating bodies for science totally rocks if icky science rings your chimes.
I had to laugh - the author Patricia Cornwell gave readers a high-minded dutiful social message while at the same time satisfying us mystery readers in our queasy q As other reviewers have noted, the title 'The Body Farm' is a bit misleading since it doesn't come into the plot until near the end, and then it is as a sidebar, but its graphic descriptive inclusion and the good Dr.
This series must be read in order - start here: Postmortem. Mixed into the plot of Dr. Scarpetta's public life of autopsies, vengeful serial killers, and bastard politicians obstructing her and the police, are a vividly dysfunctional gang of police friends, lovers and family who pop into the middle of her cases causing stress and distress.
In this book, much happens to Kay's favorite relative, Lucy, who is now a young adult. She is a genius computer-science geek who has been severely warped by Kay's self-involved low-life drama-queen sister, Dorothy, a fiction writer.
The Forensic Anthropology Center at Texas State accepts body donations for scientific research purposes under the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act.
To date they have received bodies, with up to more donations planned. The overall aim of this type of research is to assist law enforcement agents and the medico-legal community in their investigations.
It is an area of land for educational outreach and research. Researchers and students visit the ranch and participate in educational activities and projects.
Researchers and students are allowed to conduct experiments and studies at the ranch, including forensic anthropology.
The Southeast Texas Applied Forensic Science Facility STAFS is a state-of-the-art research and training facility designed to advance academic and technical knowledge in the application of forensic science disciplines to crime scenes and criminal activities.
The facility is recognized by the Anatomical Board of Texas as a willed-body donor facility, and accepts human body donations for the purposes of scientific research.
Contained within the outdoor facility are a variety of various environmental conditions, including a fluvial environment.
Web cams are located within the outdoor facility to monitor timing of various post-mortem activities from on and off-campus computers.
The building is designed as a morgue with cooler and freezer units, modern morgue equipment and tools and digital radiograph and microscope capabilities.
The environment in southeast Texas is quite different from the environment of East Tennessee. Temperature, along with many other factors, affect the decomposition process, and therefore difference in temperature will produce different decomposition results.
The Complex for Forensic Anthropology Research CFAR opened at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, IL in October working with pigs as human proxies.
The co-founders, Gretchen R. Dabbs and D. Martin, built the facility to examine the rate and pattern of decomposition in the unique environment of southern Illinois.
In comparison to the other facilities open at the time, CFAR has the lowest average temperature, highest average wind speed, second lowest elevation, the most acidic soil, and the worst soil drainage.
Since climate and environment are major factors affecting the rate and pattern of decomposition, these differences between southern Illinois and the other established facilities were expected and have proven to heavily influence the rate and pattern of decomposition.
The first human donation was accepted at CFAR in January CFAR is a unit within the Department of Anthropology College of Liberal Arts at SIU.
It is approximately 0. Outdoor cameras are used to monitor access for security purposes and record research events. Current research focuses on establishing the baseline rate and pattern of decomposition in the unique southern Illinois environment.
Additionally, researchers at CFAR attempt to mimic clandestine body disposal situations and understand how the process of decomposition is altered by those postmortem treatments and how the postmortem treatment can be identified after skeletonization.
The faculty and staff of CFAR also participate in forensic anthropology consultations and provide training seminars for local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.
The Forensic Investigation Research Station FIRS is part of Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction , and is under the direction of Dr.
Melissa Connor. Jessica Metcalf. FIRS consists of both indoor and outdoor research facilities. The outdoor facility is about an acre of fenced area surrounded by privacy fencing with razor wire.
Outdoor cameras are used both for security and research. The first pig was placed in the outdoor facility Sept , the indoor facility opened for classes in January , and the first human donation was placed in November, The focus at FIRS is on education and students include Colorado Mesa students, as well as practitioners, law enforcement, coroners, coroner deputies, and forensic scientists.
The USF Facility for Outdoor Research and Training FORT is part of the Florida Institute for Forensic Anthropology and Applied Science IFAAS at the University of South Florida in Tampa.
