Overview

Travel in Germany, Sicily, Spain, and Holland- with all expenses paid- sounds more like a dream vacation than a visiting fellowship to Gideon Oliver. That is, until some black-clad and desperate men try to kill him. And it just so happens that two other visiting scholars have met with mysterious ends.

A world-renowned anthropologist, Oliver claims he can identify his assailants by their speech patterns. But John Lau, the Army Intelligence officer assigned to the case, doesn't believe a world of it. Nor does he believe that the charred fragments of bones and teeth from a corpse can reveal its identity and smoking habits. Now caught in a web of intrigue that stretches across Europe, Oliver must rely on his forensic talents to help him solve a deadly conundrum- not to mention save his own life.

    Good beginning of series, with flaws

    I recently came across Mr. Elkins latest, but I always start a series at the beginning. This book was a good start, with an interesting hero and, to me, very interesting anthropological forensics. The flaws were an unbelievable plot and a ridiculous level of violence. Ridiculous because of the jejune attitude taken by everyone, including the hero. Our anthropology professor may stand out because he can roll with the punches, but surely he would take a little more caution the second or third time around. Also, the plot seemed crafted more to put our professor in dangerous situations than to make any sense. However, the good parts are the prof's detective friend, the friend's flakey wife (though she does not appear until the end), and the wonderful way the professor goes off into hyper-tech talk. In our post-CSI world, the forensics may not be as impressive, and I did not like that the professor was 100% correct on everything, but all in all, I am ready to read the entire series.

    If you love the Bones books by Kathy Reichs then you will love this series also, even though I'm only halfway thru the first book, I've already purchased the next 4 in this series,,, The story is so gripping you don't want to stop reading.

    enjoyable

    The Gideon Oliver series has been one of my favorites. I have read nearly all of the series but not the first until now. Elkins writes in an excellent manner and love all his discussions of bones and the deductions he makes. Gideon is a sympathetic character and has an intelligent manner about him. Always a good mystery.

    A cute little semi-spy thriller with an anthropology slant. For a first novel in series it wasn't bad, but not great. Closer to 3.5 stars than 4. Gideon and John were decently developed but not overly fleshed out, but most of the others were rather flat. There were a couple of red herrings, one very obvious, one only slightly less so. It did keep my interest and had me guessing who the traitor really was.

    I did get the impression that the author isn't real impressed with the compartmentalization of the intelligence agencies. Also it seemed like a lot of sex in this installment (I've only read one other, and that had none), so I don't know if that's something pervasive in the series or not.

    The ebook was formatted well with no obvious spelling/grammar mistakes.

    I gave up half way through. Seldom have I come across a more disjointed plot. It was almost like every other page was missing because it made so little sence. Even the love scene had me yawning. Buy it at your own risk.

    enjoyable

    This is an enjoyable read, definately date to the time period when it was written, but good.
    Charactor is believable, has some impressive skills, but isn't superman, so has his human failing also.
