The Body Farm is a research institute that tests the decomposition of corpses. Black Mountain, North Carolina, a sleepy little town where the local police deal with one homicide a year if they're lucky, and where people are still getting used to the idea of locking their doors at night. But violent death is no respecter of venue, and the discovery of the corpse of an 11 year old girl sends shock waves through the community. Dr Kay Scarpetta, Chief Medical Examiner on a similar case in Virginia, is called in to apply her forensic skills to this latest atrocity, but the apparent simplicity of the case proves something of a poisoned chalice, until Scarpetta finds enlightenment through the curious pathologists' playground known as the Body Farm. With much detail about the arsenal of guns that some Americans own, Kay's romance with Wesley and her niece finding herself as she grows up and begins a gay relationship.
