Roundtable Reviews features little more than book reviews and book news. We don't just stick to one genre. We have varying tastes and may be after a heartwarming romance one day, a new adult novel the next, and a creepy horror the day after that. Our book reviews always take one thought into consideration -- Would I pay the asking price for this book?

Brockton, the brilliant and ambitious head of the University of
Tennessee’s Anthropology Department, is ready to open a new
research facility that has certainly opened some eyes. The forensic
research the lab will engage will be cutting edge (no pun intended),
but it has made some folks in the community uneasy.
complicate matters, a series of murders create some uncomfortable
questions for Brockton since there seems to be a link to some of his
past investigations. As the corpse count mounts, not only is time of
the essence but it also appears there is a pattern here that points
to some shattering revelations about Brockton.
Body Farm series has both entertained and fascinated those readers
interested in forensics. This comes as no surprise because not only
have the novels been well plotted and the characters believable but
the science behind the series has been quite accurate.
course, this is no surprise when you realize that Dr. Bill Bass, half
of the writing team dubbed “Jefferson Bass”, is himself a
world-renowned forensic anthropologist who founded the world’s
first laboratory devoted to the study of human decomposition.
