  1. Dead Men s Hearts by Aaron Elkins.Gideon is offered a role in a documentary that will be filmed in Egypt Gideon accepts the offer on the promise that Julie will be going with him The trip begins with a cruise down the Nile A pleasant journey that is until a skeleton is discovered in the Egyptological Institute s garbage That takes the skeleton detective on a cruise that includes murder.This was a first rate mystery from page one Neither John nor Professor Goldstein were in this story and it was [...]



  2. In all, probably closer to 3.5 stars Not one of my favorite in the Gideon Oliver series There was just something missing from this story for me I was never drawn into it the way the others have grabbed me.I like Gideon and Julie Phil was OK, but honestly almost all of the rest blurred together They seemed like interchangeable throw away characters This was another story sans John Lau John makes for a better story most of the time He needed to be involved somehow.Also, the ending fight seemed hur [...]


  3. It had been a while since I read an Arron Elkins and I was not disappointed Gideon Oliver is in Egypt to help make a documentary about a down on its heels museum The pompous, hard drinking curator of the museum is shocked to find a skeleton in an unused shed In his alcoholic stupor, he thinks he sees a statue s head there, but upon return to the scene, the head and the skeleton were gone The skeleton reappears in it s box, safe and sound and the Skeleton Doctor, Gideon Oliver determined the skel [...]


  4. A bit suspense than usual at the end But I enjoy Julie and Gideon And the bits of archeology and forensic anthropology Usually a rather easy going mystery.



  5. When asked to narrate a documentary on Ancient Egypt for a university donor, Dr Gideon Oliver declines the request After being strong armed into it, he accepts and packs his bags to head over with his wife Julie tagging along When they arrive, the local American archaeological team is scrambling to deal with the discovered remains of an ancient skeleton from their collection How did it end up in a rubbish pile and what does it all mean While Gideon heads out to begin his filming and narration, t [...]


  6. I just rediscovered this book, which I finished about a week ago This is, as the cover says, a Gideon Oliver mystery, set in Egypt So you can t go wrong there, for me Bones and pharoahs cool.Gideon is in Egypt providing commentary for a documentary but really it s of a vacation for him and Julie Of course, a body is unearthed in an old garbage pile not unusual in Egypt, and the presumption is that it is something from a museum collection that was mishandled several decades ago The weird thing i [...]


  7. I like the Gideon Oliver series of mysteries They re entertaining and well constructed, and with a main character who s a forensic anthropologist, I even learn a few things In this one, it s Egyptology, as well as some interesting descriptions of visiting the Nile area seeing the past and the present side by side


  8. First time reading this author with the skeleton detective Like all the main characters, did not like the settingme were hard to figure out and keep straight Will read another in a different setting.


  9. Very enjoyable mystery set at a dig in Amarna region of Egypt with lots of archeological color and sniping academic and movie industry folks And good old Gideon Oliver and his lovely, adventurous wife.


  10. Pretty fun I read it three days ago and can t really remember the plot, so obviously not earth shattering Elkins is great at creating obnoxious characters that you love to hate in this case a pompous archeologist who forces people to listen to lectures on verb forms in ancient Egypt.


  11. Traveling down the Nile, what could be romantic All that Gideon must do is give a couple of lectures on board, what could be easier Until a skeleton is found in an Egyptian dump, followed soon afterward by a violent death of an Egyptologist I have just started rereading this one.



  12. Another book with some of my favorite moments the reconstruction of the skull of Klingon Bozzuto and the most expensive coffee in the world bar none


  13. Perfect murder mystery Enjoyed all aspects tone, protagonists, setting I d read others by this author and look forward to it


  14. Gideon goes to Egypt sounds like an easy reader, yes and becomes embroiled in a mystery or two I like this squeamish forensic anthropologist and his approach to complex problems.




  15. Fascinating to read about Egypt back in the 1990 s A much friendlier place then That being said, Mr Elkins did not disappoint in delivering a fun and informative book.




  16. Another intriguing mystery featuring Gideon Oliver, set in exotic Egypt among the pyramids and antiquities found there.


  17. A little mystery and less Bones in this one, and like a couple of others, it seemed a little rushed at the end All in all, a decent read, but definitely not my favorite.


  18. Fun reads combing the best of detective writing with anthropology Great series that I have been enjoying for years.
