review Fellowship of Fear 103 When anthropology professor Gideon Oliver is offered a teaching fellowship at US military bases in Germany Sicily Spain and Holland he wastes no time accepting Stimulating courses to teach a decent stipend all expenses paid plenty of interesting European travel What's not to like It does not take him long to find ou. Book 1 of this Forensic Anthropologist series and I highly enjoyed it Decent plot with action all over and we get enough background our hero Gideon Oliver to get an understanding of the man A lot of technical terms and at times an overuse of them but all help to explain how Gideon gets his deductions on people Interesting end of story and I hope to see a lot of this series in my future reading
