"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

DI Kim Stone and her team are ordered to the new body farm to learn more about what they do there. All Kim can think about is the new cases stacked on their desks that are moldering away while they are on this excursion. While there, Kim notices something odd. What they discover is a body that does not belong there.
Meanwhile, due to a telephone call from a pesky and annoying reporter, Kim takes an interest in “Bob.” He is a cold case of an unidentified murdered man without his fingers. A review of his autopsy shows that his pacemaker was removed.
A second body in found at the body farm, but this woman is alive. She remains in a coma in the hospital. A boyfriend comes into the hospital and identifies her. Then another body is found. This one was buried, but killed in the same manner as the first woman.
The clues come fast and furious and the team has a viable case on their hands. When the reporter who originally telephoned Kim goes missing, the team fears the worst. The last of the puzzle pieces fall into place and the chase in on.
Meanwhile another body is found. This time the man is missing his hands. This case is related to the “Bob” case of three years ago. What is the connection between the men?
The killer comes as a surprise. It is more than a little ironic. The reason for the murders is deep in the past.
This book is extremely well written and potted. It has a lot of action and is fast paced. I enjoy the relationships between Kim, Bryant, Stacy and Kev rest of the team. You’ll enjoy this book as I enjoyed all of the Angela Marsons novels. It is truly refreshing to read a write such as this one. I can’t wait to dig into the next in the series.
In this outing, Kim and her team are called out to Westerley Research Facility. An unassuming patch of land where scientists study the way human bodies decompose. Better know as a "Body Farm". But now, there is a new resident that does not belong.
While a story set at a body farm may be off putting to some readers, Kim shares that repulsion. The location is viewed no differently as other crime scenes and is described quickly to show Kim's aversion. Others find the idea of this kind of research compelling, so there is enough detail to gain an understanding of what this facility truly does to advance forensic science.
The story sees some familiar faces return and explores Kim's interpersonal relationships, or lack there of. She has lived her entire life closed off from all other people in her life, including her team. In a previous book, she skirts the idea of a relationship with a case consultant that never does come to fruition. Now she has to face her own hostilities towards other people in general and the consultant specifically.
While Kim has issues with the living, she will never give up on the dead. Reopening a cold case as a favor leads to nothing but frustration and dead ends. Exactly the kind of case Kim lives for. She is devoted to her search for justice. This is a woman that pushes her boundaries to the limit, with instances where she nearly goes too far. But everything she does is for the right reasons even if it is a bit unorthodoxed. Kim is powerful and headstrong character that will keep readers coming back again and again.
