As usual Jefferson and Bass have come up with a winner, again. WITHOUT MERCY is about forensic anthropologist, Dr. Bill Brockton. He loves his job solving murders unless it's his own. Working on the bones of a person who had been chained to a tree and used as bear bait, leads Dr. B to a murderer he foiled 25 years ago. Now inmate, Satterfield, has escaped and is after Dr. B. The title brings to light whether Satterfield should be taken back to jail or captured "without mercy." Read to find out what happens.
