An ancient mystery tied to modern villainy;a cast of wacky eccentries; a sunny protagonist; and more facts about forensic pathology than... well, than you can shake a bone at. MYSTERY-THRILLER.
A small village in France known for it's pate de foie gras and bones.
Gideon is called in when a dog emerges from a cave carrying parts of a human skeleton - not that long ago interred.
From the back cover: Professor Gideon Oliver knows bones. That is why the mild mannered sometimes investigator is the forensic specialist the Chief Inspector in Les Eysies calls when a local dog emerges from a nearby cave carrying parts of a human skeleton--and a not-all-that-long-ago-iterred one at that. But murder piles on murder--and surprise uon electrifying surprise--following Gideon's arrival, as his search for answers leads him quickly into the darkest corners of the scientific community...and sets him on a shocking trail of death, greed, and deception nearly forty; thousand years in the making.
