Since this book appears to be part of a series I guess that's why we never learned what happened with Brockton's paternity issues. Looks like I'll never know because this installment wasn't good enough to make me want to continue. Oh, the story and characters were adequate even though it wasn't too difficult to figure out where things were going.
The author provided a large clue about two-thirds of the way through. I was also a tad bored with Brockton's descriptive crawling on the steep creek bank. It seemed to me the author was trying to fill up pages. This is one of those books that you are not sorry you listened to but won't be motivated to listen to another one in the series. I read the first book in the series and liked it so much I bought the next book in hardcover as soon as it came out, something I almost never do.
Alas, that second book was not good -- I thought the whole concept was inherently incredible, the writing amateurish, and overall, it was way, way too pedantic. If I wanted to read a textbook, I could have done that. I'd decided that these authors had only one good book in them.
But then I saw "Bone Thief" on Audible on special -- for the price, I was willing to try another one. And wow!
The Bone Thief
This one is great. Very very good story -- something for everyone. Good plot, plenty of "oh good grief, he's not really going to Now I'll be looking for more in this series. It's just excellent, the whole thing. This is a pleasant book filled with a lot of information thinly disguised as a plot, a kind of Ask Mr. Science ambiance. The happy scientist is a nice guy, not merely straitlaced but utterly naive as well. The narrator seems apt for this protagonist.
If you like your tales tame, this is a good one. What would have made The Bone Thief better? A better story. This one was boring, and it took a long time for the boredom to carry on to the end. The story wasn't that great. Probably not. What character would you cut from The Bone Thief? All of them. What did you love best about The Bone Thief?

I hadn't read any of Jefferson Bass before this experience, but now I plan to begin with the first in this series. I really like his style, it has me wanting more from him. I do recommend this book, but the title suggests nail-biting and page-turning suspense.
I like the main character, and I was interested in how his story unfolded. And the medical, surgical, biological descriptions seemed realistic without horrifying me as in grossness.
