    The Body Farm is Dr Kay Scarpetta s fifth novel, published in 1994 Her dear niece s age has been hastily augmented to twenty one I was certain Lucy was under twelve in their 1990 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 teamma

    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
