                Research suggestions: If you are doing research or writing on Gideon Oliver, Elkins' forensic sleuth, you would want to examine real forensic practice, such as that described in Mary Manhein's The Bone Lady (1998) and compare it to Oliver's routines.. Manhein is the director of LSU's FACES Laboratory. You might also want to look at federal, state, and municipal laws regarding graves, artifacts and archaeological digs.



Besides Elkins, other mystery authors who feature forensics specialists or themes in their works include Keith Ablow, Asen, Noreen Ayres, Bahr, Beverly Connor, K. C. Constantine, Patricia Cornwell, Jeffrey Deaver, Jeffrey Denhart, Jo Dereske, D. J. Donaldson, Eileen Dreyer, Susan Dunlap, Nick Gaitano, Leonard S.
