"The forensic thriller meets a formidable slice of history in
Jefferson Bass's impressive new novel....In addition to being a
riveting mystery with an intricately emotional conclusion, Bones of
Betrayal bears witness to the past with great respect for the long
shadow it casts."--Washington Post
"This series...just keeps getting better. [Bones of Betrayal] features both the most compelling story and the best portrayal yet of Brockton, who has completed the transition from fictional representation of coauthor Bass to fully realized protagonist."--Booklist
"Bones of Betrayal has more than its share of twists, turns, and red herrings....Wartime Oak Ridge proves nearly as atmospheric a crime scene as Sam Spade's San Francisco or Philip Marlowe's L.A."--Wilmington Star News
