I am not a fan of the TV show Bones but I am a fan of Kathy Reichs. She writes fictional books based on her real life experiences as a forensic anthropologist. I particularly enjoy her ability to interject her science in a manner which is understandable by the average person. Besides learning a few words in French, I also learn a bit about forensic investigation.
This particular book is of particular interest to me. I was raised on Oahu, specifically in Kailua right next to Lanikai so there is a lot of familiarity to me. Ms. Reichs does a good job of writing about the various ethnic groups in Hawaii. I do wonder why anyone would stay in Lanikai and commute all the way across the island to work at Hickham AFB.
Spider Bones is simply another great read by a very talented author. I enjoy the smooth flow of the story line, the characters and their personalities, and the humorous nature of personal interactions. A great fun read that is highly recommended.
