In the Spring of 1994, Rwanda was the scene of the first acts since the Second World War to be legally defined as genocide. Two years later, Clea Koff, a twenty-three-year-old forensic anthropologist, was one of sixteen scientists chosen by the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal to go to Rwanda to unearth physical evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity.The Bone Woman is Koff's riveting, intimate account of that mission and six subsequent missions she undertook to Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo on behalf of the UN. It is, ultimately, a story filled with hope, humanity and justice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It may be that this is the ultimate memoir of the post-Cold War decade... a hugely important book -- Alec Russell * Daily Telegraph *
Clea Koff has given some of the best years of her life to digging up mutilated bodies and coping with the inevitable emotional toll of such intimacy with death. ... The Bone Woman eschews the outrage to which she would have been entitled, and is the more powerful for it. -- Giles Whittell * The Times *
Offers a fascinating insight into the role of forensic anthropology in investigating human rights abuses... despite the extraordinary depravity of the crimes detailed in its pages, The Bone Woman is a humane, hopeful and involving book -- Phil Whitaker * Guardian *
That what Clea Koff does is necessary and excellent is not in need of saying: it is impossible to reach the end of The Bone Woman without great admiration for her tenacity and stoicism. -- Caroline Moorehead * Independent *
