As always, I really enjoyed this latest Tempe Brennan novel which sported a fast-paced plot and good, intriguing science. The ultimate ending was a bit overly convoluted but it was well supported by the rest of the plot. I especially enjoyed the depictions of CIL-HI operations.
Readers who enjoyed Thomas Holland's One Drop of Blood will likely enjoy this and vice versa.

I was expecting a thrilling page-turner, but was greatly disappointed as the plot continually got bogged down by constant explanations of dry minutiae. The narrator tried hard to keep one's interest, but fought a losing battle when pitted against endless expositions on such trivia as the chain of command on reporting naval deaths in the Pacific, battles fought by various ancient Hawaiian kings, and much more. To me, it was as if Ms. Reichs worked harder to impress us with her brilliance and research abilities rather than treat us to a breathtaking ride through the pages of her novel.
