Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0826319505, Hardcover)

Who killed Bob Shafer, noted and notorious paleoanthropologist? When he disappears on the eve of his triumph over a rival scientist at a conference in an exotic East African city, suspicion of foul play emerges immediately, for Shafer had made many enemies. Discovery of his ravaged skeleton a year later in a remote fossil locale casts a web of mutual suspicion upon Shafer's many rivals, a wronged student, a jilted lover. Caught in the web are two young graduate students, he the son of the most feared man in the nation of Asalia, she an American struggling up from a lower-class background in a male-dominated field. Their growing mutual attraction is blighted by fear and mistrust as, one by one, the field of suspects narrows. Written from firsthand experience of fossil fieldwork, the story brings you face to face with the hazards and human conflicts of the search for our earliest ancestors.
