What People Are Saying

Sarah Caudwell
"He not only makes one thing how interesting it would be an anthropologist, he almost persuades one that a certain amount of fun could be had out of being a skeleton."

    Good Read

    I just finished this one, and though it's different than what I usually read, I really liked it. It's got a lot of forensic type detective work as the renowned Gideon Oliver, the "Skeleton Detective" works out the evidence at hand. Uncovering a bizarre and unimagined series of events leading to a surprising discovery. He's the original Bones, only I find him more easy to relate to because he's more human and has a sense of humor. It's almost charming when he goes off talking about bones, anthropology and details. The book had me right up till the end, which I did not see coming. I think I'll be checking out the other books in this series now.

    This series has me hooked!

    I liked the second novel THE DARK PLACE even better than the first. I love the way his physical anthropology, what I think of probably incorrectly as forensic science, leads to clues !!

    I likie Elkins

    I had read two Arron Elkins' books several years ago. When I got my NOOK one of the authors that I wanted look up was Elkins. I have now read four Elkins books and intend to read all of his books. Nook is the way to go.

    Excellent. Always a enjoyable read.

    Up to standard with the other books in the series. I "pre-order" new releases whenever possible because quality is guaranteed.
