I really enjoyed this entry in Reichs' series. Her previous novel I found very "preachy" and obvious. This one was nothing like that. I found the information about the ongoing search for soldiers who are M.I.A. very interesting, and the storyline absorbing. Of course it didn't hurt that the story takes place in Hawaii, one of my favourite places! It did make for a nice change from the usual locations of Quebec or the Carolinas. Would definitely recommend this one both to loyal readers and to new ones.
A word of warning: for those to this series, the Tempe Brennan in the books is NOT the same as the Tempe Brennan in the Fox TV show "Bones".
