This is the second book by Elkins which I have read. Fortunately, I didn't read this one first, or I would have ditched the author. It started off interestingly enough, but then turned into more of a romance than a mystery. Coupled with needless descriptions of trivia, including love making, the book just lost my interest and I became bored with it. I skimmed through the last 33% of the book, just killing time.

I usually enjoy a Gideon Oliver book, but this one is too full of "give me a break" moments . Gideon is called in to help identify bones found in woven baskets that had been buried in the Olympic Peninsula National Park. Two men had gone missing in the rain forest 30 years previous and he needs to determine if the bones belong to the two men. Gideon meets his future wife, Julie, who is stationed there as a park ranger. He is immediately attracted to her and she to him. Within a short time, we get an unnecessary description of their intimate moments whenever they get together. Gideon concludes from the bones that the two men were murdered. By whom? The Bigfoot theory is discarded. About 3/4 into the book, Gideon is convinced that a lost tribe of Indians is responsible for the murders and the recent disappearance of a young girl. He is proved correct in the end.
The author needs to pay attention to time lines. In this book the year is 1982. Gideon is 40 years old. He proposes to Julie. In a later book set in 2004 it has them getting married in 1997. ???????

The book was well written. It kept me interested and moved at a good pace I enjoyed another of Gideon's adventures. He doesn't do outrageous things or take stupid risks. He Thinks through actions before doing them. I enjoy how he plans to proceed in solving problems. I will read more in the series

First read this book some years ago, loaned it to someone and of course - gone. So I was glad to pull it up on Kindle and go into the dark Northern rain forest again. Elkins does a great job by building on the true story of Ishi and doing a what-if on some remaining members of his tribe. It is done sympathetically done without being maudlin. I like Elkins' books a lot, both Gideon Oliver series and the ones about the art expert - always fun, and you always learn something new.

This book has special meaning for me because I live near the home of Ishi, the so-called last of the Yahi Indians. What if his lost tribe actually resettled and is still living in the Northwest? And what if they will do anything to stay undiscovered? Nice plot, some authentic details about living conditions.

Some of his books are better than others. Since I live in the location where this book takes place, I was not impressed with he story line at all. I would buy a different book first and leave this one for last.

A fellow mystery lover recommended this to me as particularly interesting because the author is also a scientist and brings that to the storyline. The details are great! The love story not so much--it's a little pallid and unsurprising. But the locale (NW Washington state, in the Olympic Peninsula) is fascinating.
A wonderful crime novel from Aaron Elkins, bringing his hero -- forensic anthropologist Gideon Oliver -- on stage for the second time. In general, the books in this series are quick and amusing reads, from which you learn a little about forensic anthropology, and a little about whatever locale Elkins has chosen. This book, however, goes a lot further. To say where it goes would give too much away, but the setting (Washington's Olympic National Park) becomes a palpable presence. So does the person who becomes a central character, a truly fascinating individual. I've reread this more than once, and expect to do so again
