It’s a Mystery: Remains Silent, by Dr. Michael Baden and Linda Kenney Baden

Remains Silent

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

When a trio of skeletons are unearthed at the construction site of a shopping mall, NYC medical examiner Jake Rosen is called to the scene in hopes that he’ll label the remains as too ancient for legal action. Of course that doesn’t happen, despite specific threats from the developers. When the bodies are found to be former mental patients at a nearby mental hospital, Jake calls attorney Manny Manfreda to help relatives decide if a lawsuit is in order. Jake and Manny are soon swept into an investigation that will reveal secret medical experiments, a vast cover-up by the U.S. government, and several attempts on their own lives.

Remains Silent is a fast-paced crime mystery in which each new discovery leads to yet another mystery, some of which have direct impact on Jake, Manny, and their friends and colleagues. There’s nothing deep or psychological here, just a fun story with some likeable characters, and dashes o humor, forensic detail, and romance sandwiched in.
