Most of the action in this latest Temperance Brennan novel takes places in Hawaii, but the case originates in the actions of two young men in Lumberton, North Carolina in the 1960s. Authorities in Quebec are puzzled as to how an American soldier thought to have died in the Vietnam War could turn up a corpse in Canada forty years later. Tempe Brennan is called in. Her visit to the man’s father will introduce readers to Lumberton, but the Vietnam War and drug smuggling are the true subjects of the novel.
