Acclaimed for a mischievous wit and his intriguing mixture of forensic anthropology and real skull-duggery, Aaron Elkins is one of the best in the business and getting better all the time. Now, the author of Good Blood returns, and so does Gideon Oliver, professor of forensics, who uncovers a deadly family plot of greed and murder in the northern uplands of Hawaii.

Forensics expert Gideon Oliver journeys to northern Hawaii to uncover a deadly family plot involving greed, intrigue, skullduggery, and murder.

Blackwell North Amer
There's a family plot unfolding in the northern uplands of Hawaii - on the magnificent 11,000-acre spread of ranching heir Axel Torkelsson. After going missing ten years ago, the small private plane of Axel's late Uncle Magnus has finally been found in a remote lagoon, hundreds of miles south of the Big Island. So too have Magnus's few and scattered skeletal remains, exhumed by divers and now handed over to the only man who can fit together the pieces of this mystery.
What forensic detective Gideon Oliver is discovering could shake the Torkelsson family tree to its very roots. But this time his work is yielding more questions about the past than answers. Questions about the long-ago execution-style murder of Magnus's brother...about a deadly dispute between rival ranching syndicates...about a mysterious will that benefits - as well as incriminates - its heirs...and most disturbing of all: questions as to the true identity of the corpse in the lagoon. But if it isn't Uncle Magnus...
As lie upon lie is revealed, as secret upon secret is exposed, Gideon's only hope is to let the bones of the dead condemn the living - before the living take revenge.

& Taylor

Forensics expert Gideon Oliver returns in an all new mystery as he journeys to northern Hawaii to uncover a deadly family plot involving greed, intrigue, skullduggery, and murder. By the Edgar Award-winning author of Good Blood.
