The Bone Yard by Jefferson Bass

Early summer brings warm weather to the Body Farm in East Tennessee, but Dr Bill Brockton’s about to get more heat than he’s bargained for. A former student who’s now an agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement seeks his help in identifying a partial skull found in the woods in rural Florida. The victim appears to have been a young male who died from lethal blows to the head. While leading a search for the remaining bones, Brockton and his graduate assistant Miranda Lovelady find a series of shallow graves on the overgrown grounds of a shuttered reform school for boys. According to local lore, the school’s poor, troubled students understood that one wrong move could land them in their own plot in the de facto cemetery. As Brockton and his team close in on the truth, they find skeletons in some surprisingly prominent closets… and learn that the ghosts of the past are ever present.

The previous other five books in the Body Farm series are:
