THE BREAKING POINT

By Jefferson Bass (William Morrow $26.99)

Dr. Bill Brockton, the alias of the co-author, Dr. Bill Bass, famed forensic anthropologist, who created the Body Farm, the real-life lab in Tennessee, is called in by the FBI to help identify the charred remains of a pilot who crashed into a mountainside. Was it an accident, suicide or murder? Meanwhile, Brockton’s nemesis, the killer Satterfield, sends a package to Brockton’s home that opens a Pandora of horrors. 


DISPATCHES FROM PLUTO

By Richard Grant (Simon and Schuster Paperbacks $16)

There are native Mississippians who never heard of Pluto, a town so small they took away its zip code. This hilarious story follows an Englishman and his New York City fiancé to the town of Pluto where he buys a decrepit plantation house and learns about mosquitoes, nutria, snakes and other varmints.
