The first of the Dr. Bill Brockton books, and my favorite. Well, of what I've read.
Combining an interesting case in the present with a fascinating 30+ year old corpse, there are plenty of twists and turns.
This is a reread for me-- been years since I read it and I figured I'd better brush up to read the rest of the series.
Overall, recommended, but not for the squeamish.
(This was a Reader's Choice in like... 2007? I think.)
