I loved The Bone Thief, right down to the usual graphic medical procedures! I very much like that the series educates as well as entertains. In this book, Brockton was talked into doing some undercover work when the Feds involved him in a case against an unscrupulous tissue bank, which was different. My only complaint was I felt there were too many references to past cases so there was some skimming involved for me. I found myself thinking: "I know, I know, I know! I've read the first four books!!" (The fact that I absolutely loved the end of the book definitely made up for the repetition, however!)

This one gives lots of information about organ transplants and cutting edge technology along with the usual mystery that Dr. Brockton must solve.

The discovery of a corpse that has missing bones leads to discovery of a black market in body parts, and intriguing comments about transplants.
