A Corpse in Maple Syrup?

Kathy Reichs, known for her mystery series featuring a forensic anthropologist named Temperance Brennan, turns out to be knowledgeable about maple syrup production as well.

In her latest, "Bones Never Lie" (New York: Bantam Books, 2014), one of Dr. Brennan's cases involves a corpse preserved in a vat of maple syrup.

A discussion of the sugaring process (in this novel, it's in Vermont) includes both collection of sap and syrup production.
