Forged in the era of World War II, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, was a top-secret military installation—the linchpin of the Manhattan Project. Brilliant careers were born and dark secrets buried in the desperate race to build the Bomb. Those secrets begin to emerge when the body of a renowned physicist is discovered . . .

Forensic anthropologist Bill Brockton, founder of the Body Farm, is shocked when an autopsy reveals the cause of Dr. Leonard Novak's death: a deadly radioactive pellet inside the elderly scientist's body. Who would commit such a horrific crime? Is it related to Novak's role in creating America's deadliest weapon? The answers may lie with the victim's aging ex-wife, Beatrice, a captivating, yet utterly unreliable storyteller. Careening between history and fantasy, dementia and lucidity, Beatrice draws Brockton into a maze of memories, leading him to darker truths than he could have imagined.

Journal Entry 3 by wingbooklady331wing at Cape Coral, Florida USA on Wednesday, February 21, 2018
Dr Bill Brockton’s latest case is one of his most complicated yet. His life continues to be even more complicated. Old grudges pop up when Brockton is consulted on the mysterious death of a retired nuclear physicist. The tangle of his death leads all the way back to World War II, but has dramatic and dangerous consequences for Brockton and those closest to him. Seemed like a stretch at times.

The pacing can sometimes be uneven. At times, I found myself getting impatient during some of the lengthy flashbacks told from one character’s POV. Not going to search out other books in the series, but won’t rule out reading another if it comes my way.
