The stunning new thriller from The New York Times-best-selling author.
When a Crow Indian acquaintance of Tomlinson’s asks him to help recover a relic stolen from his tribe, Doc Ford is happy to tag along - but neither Doc nor Tomlinson realize what they’ve let themselves in for. Their search takes them to the part of Central Florida known as Bone Valley, famous primarily for two things: A ruthless subculture of black-marketers who trade in illegal artifacts and fossils, and a multibillion-dollar phosphate industry whose strip mines compromise the very ground they walk on.
Neither enterprise tolerates nosy outsiders. For each, public exposure equals big financial losses - and in a region built on a million-year accumulation of bones, there is no shortage of spots in which to hide a corpse. Or two.

Bone deep was just average
I was happy to see Mr. Guidall remember how Tomlinson sounds again, but this book was pretty unremarkable. There was nothing riveting and it moved in a predictable path. The lunatic guy in the book was very unbelievable as a character, I found his character one-dimensional.
The last several books I have read by RWW, I've rallied against Doc dating Hannah Smith. But now that they sort of broke it off, I miss her. Doc is still my favorite character, but Ms. Smith is pretty remarkable too.
Tomlinson has become a third tier character now, I miss having his more cavalier moments in the books. While his demeanor remained the same, and several passages where classic Tomlinson, he became a bit of the side show in this one. I would love to see him and Doc go on a "vacation" together, or would love to see Doc get more involved with one of his kids and get the heck out of Florida for a change.
Have no real interst in archeology
