Описание

Gideon Oliver earns his moniker "The Skeleton Detective" in this riveting entry to the Edgar Award-winning mystery series "that never disappoints" (The Philadelphia Inquirer).

Deep in the primeval rainforest of Washington state's Olympic Peninsula, the skeletal remains of a murdered man are discovered. And a strange, unsettling tale begins to unfold, for forensic anthropologist Gideon Oliver determines that the murder weapon was a primitive bone spear of a type not seen for the last 10,000 years. And whoever — or whatever — hurled it did so with seemingly superhuman force. Bigfoot "sightings" immediately crop up, but Gideon is not buying them.

But something is continuing to kill people, and Gideon, helped by forest ranger Julie Tendler and FBI special agent John Lau, plunges into the dark heart of an unexplored wilderness to uncover the bizarre, astonishing explanation.

Fans of authors Kathy Reichs and Tess Gerritsen and television shows like Bones will be fascinated by Aaron Elkins's award-winning landmark forensic detective series.

    One of my favorite mystery personnel, Gideon Oliver, an anthropologist turned dectective. Known as the 'Skeleton Man.

    The rain forest on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington can hide a lot. But can it hide a prehistoric tribe? So it would seem in this latest round of Gideon Oliver's adventures, along with his wife Julie. They make a great team, and add John Lau to the mix you get entertainment.

    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.

    This is the second Gideon Oliver mystery by Aaron Elkins. The dark place is the Olympic National Park in Washington, here the dense canopy hides the sun from most of the forest floor. A few bones in a basket are found by a hiker, and a large footprint is found nearby. John Lau asks Gideon to provide whatever information he can determine. These are the bones of several people and dead by a number of years, it could be an indian burial site, but there are no Indians in the park. Another sign points to big foot, so the crazies are about. The story is well-told and a good mystery, throw in a love interest with a park ranger and you have an enjoyable story.

    Nice little mystery about disappearing hikers in Washington's State's Olympic National Park. Gideon Oliver, the "skeleton detective," gets called in. While he's discovering more about the bones, he's also discovering Julie Tendler, the pretty head ranger.

    Not bad. It's a very sudden passion - particularly after Fellowship of Fear established Gideon as still getting over Nora - but though sudden it's reasonably explained/explored. The mystery is something of a side-story - not the major focus of the book, though it is what moves things forward.

    I am just getting to know Gideon Oliver and while I too have those Really??? moments I find the stories interesting enough to subdue my disbelief. In The Dark Place Gideon is involved in a mystery that involves the temperate rain forest in Washington State. Here the sun never reaches the ground and in most of the area the sky is not even visible. There was a definite sense of time and place that grabbed my attention.

    mystery, myths-legends, anthropologist, romance****I still like this one even after a number of years. I'd forgotten the romance novel stuff, but I was more than happy to reread all of the anthro. It was nice hearing about University of Wisconsin and Gideon's friends in anthropology and the FBI. The mystery was solid with good writing and problem solving.Joel Richards did a nice job of narrating.
