I admit it! I love the show CSI: New York. It is a group of "forensic investigators who use high-tech science to follow the evidence and solve crimes in the big apple." Plus, the actors are cute and there's a strong Southern woman as one of the main characters! Now, I have the chance to learn what really happens behind the scenes in forensic science and investigation from the bestselling author Jefferson Bass, the writing team of Dr. Bill Bass and Jon Jefferson.

In the early 1980s Dr. Bill Bass, a world-renowned forensic anthropologist, founded the University of Tennesee’s Body Farm—the world’s first laboratory devoted to human decomposition. He is the author of more than 200 scientific publications, and a nonfiction account of the Body Farm, DEATH’S ACRE, written with Jon Jefferson. A veteran journalist, science writer, and documentary filmmaker, Jefferson has written for the New York Times, Newsweek, and National Public Radio. He is the coauthor of DEATH’S ACRE, and the producer of two National Geographic documentaries about the Body Farm broadcast worldwide. Together they have written the New York Times bestselling Body Farm series. Their sixth book, The Bone Yard, comes out in early March.
Come to the US Space & Rocket Center on Tuesday, March 15th from 6:30 - 9:00 for an author presentation and book signing and tour the CSI exhibit. It promises to be an evening filled with Murder and Mayhem!
