A Gideon Oliver Mystery; 0.9 x 6.7 x 4 Inches; 272 pages
From the Edgar(R) Award winning author of "Uneasy Relations." Starring Professor Gideon Oliver? ?a likable, down-to-earth, cerebral sleuth.? (CHICAGO TRIBUNE)
Sailing the Amazon with a group of botanists, ?Skeleton Detective? Gideon Oliver is on his dream vacation. But it turns nightmarish when fierce head-hunters narrowly miss killing the group leader, then a deranged passenger kills a botanist and flees. Long-past enmities and resentments?and new ones as well?might explain things. And when a fresh skeleton turns up in the river, Gideon is sure that, in this jungle full of predators, humans may be the deadliest of all.
