I'm a big fan of Kathy Reichs' books, of which Spider Bones is the most recent. In this outing, protagonist Temperance Brennan is asked to bring her forensic anthropology skills to bear when three different sets of remains are identified as belonging to the same man.

Clearly, this is impossible.

Brennan is whisked off to the military's Joint Prisoners of War/Missing in Action Command (JPAC), because the man in question, John Lowery, is cited as having died during the Vietnam war.

Along the way, Brennan runs afoul of local gangs, the local medical examiner, and Lowery's father.

As is always the case with Reichs, the book was a real page-turner. I used to work for the Dept. of Defense, and I can say that her particulars about repatriation of remains and other military matters are spot-on.

Highly recommended for those who enjoy a good police procedural
