Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is a small village in France that is well known for pate de foie gras ... and bones. Boasting the largest concentration of prehistoric fossils in Europe, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac is the home of the prestigious Institute de Prehistoire — where eminent scientists study and squabble ... and perhaps, on occasion, commit murder.<P>Professor Gideon Oliver knows bones. That's why the mild- mannered sometime-investigator is the forensic specialist the Chief Inspector in Les Eyzies calls when a local dog emerges from a nearby cave carrying parts of a human skeleton — and a not-all-that-long-ago-interred one at that. But murder piles on murder — and surprise upon 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.
