The Breaking Point by Jefferson Bass
Author Jefferson Bass takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions and suspense in the latest installment of the Body Farm series, THE BREAKING POINT.
Narrator Tom Stechschulte does a wonderful job giving voices to the numerous characters. His inflections and varied mannerisms keeps listeners on the edge of their seat with anticipation. His pace matches the story’s emotions and heightened the suspense.
Dr. Bill Brockton is seemingly hit from all sides. The forensic anthropologist is called in to help identify the charred remains of a wealthy philanthropist killed in a plane crash. Brock’s trouble begins when his identification of the crash victim is called into question. Following that he receives a threatening message from a serial killer who tried to kill him and his family a decade before. His handling of bodies donated to his Body Farm – the world’s first postmortem research facility – is challenged. The final blow is the shocking news he receives from his beloved wife, Kathleen.
Amid the hardship Brock tries to find answers and solve problems before he reaches the breaking point.
The author quickly draws readers/listeners into the plight his protagonist is facing. He weaves a tale of suspense, frustration and despair.
The characters are well-developed, likable and extremely realistic. The emotional entanglement of the main characters is gripping and adds another level to the story. The author blends professional and personal calamities resulting in heart-wrenching moments.
This is the ninth installment in the series, but readers/listeners won’t be left in the dark by unanswered questions from hints of prior stories. THE BREAKING POINT will hold you spellbound with the combination of forensic science, intriguing mystery, and personal tribulations.
