Elkins once said that all the brilliant discoveries Oliver makes in his book have been made by other physical anthropologists. Elkins just makes them all occur to our hero, and gives them a criminal twist. Did I make that sound easy? If it was then everybody would be writing books like this. And they don't.
Gideon Oliver, that most engaging forensic anthropologist, solves a lulu here....Aaron Elkins is witty, and oh so clever with that final twist."
