Only a small pile of bones remained of a hiker who vanished in Washington State's Olympic National Park years ago - just enough for Gideon Oliver, the skeleton detective, to deduce that someone, or something, of superhuman strength had killed him.

Sometimes I just need to read a fun little thriller about lost treasure set in exotic locales, and Aaron Elkins' Loot was perfect-- especially since I've read books about the incredible work done by the Monuments Men during World War II. I've often wondered just how many stolen treasures are still hiding deep in mines and other hideaways, but I digress.

Loot suffers from an unnecessary love interest and a hero who's more than a little dense when it comes to the safety of himself and others, but the book's fast pace and interesting premise kept me reading happily until the end.… (lisätietoja)
