"When Gideon Oliver is invited to join an Amazon riverboat expedition with a group of research botanists, he anticipates a relaxing getaway from his academic and forensic duties in an exotic locale. But relaxation is not on the itinerary." "There's stifling heat and humidity, giant bird-eating spiders, snakes, fire ants, jungle shamans, hallucinogenic plants, and corrupt military officials - all of which are expected. What isn't expected is the primitive lance that is flung from the river's shore on the first day of the expedition, narrowly missing the leader of the botanists. Hanging from the lance is a shrunken human head - the warning of the Chayacuro, a fierce tribe of headhunters. But they aren't the only danger.".
"Hundreds of miles upriver, one of the botanists is killed in the middle of the night by a seemingly deranged passenger who leaps overboard and flees into the darkness. No one can explain why. Theories begin to simmer, though, and stories of long-past, half-forgotten enmities and resentments - and new ones as well - boil to the surface." "Only when a fresh skeleton turns up in the river, scoured to the bone by voracious piranhas, does Gideon realize that in this jungle full of predators, humans may be the deadliest of all."--BOOK JACKET.

Another interesting story from this author. The background on bones is overwhelming and amazing. The characters are good and the plot moves along well.
