Very good so far! :)

This one deal (to a degree) with the branch that identifies and repatriates corpses from foreign conflicts. Tempe is trying to identify the corpse of a Vietnam veteran.

Her books often make me laugh out loud. :D

I'm reading The Secret River by Kate Grenville, it's a very sad book. A novel about modern Australia's origins.
Best wishes,

It's the one where she's in Hawaii right? I didn't think it was her best novel, but enjoyed reading it. Someones daughter finally coming to her senses (trying not to include spoilers).

Have you read Virals, Tony? I didn't know, when I bought it, that it was a book for the younger audience...it did become clear after a short time though. Reichs is keeping it in the family so to speak as Virals main character is her nephew Kits daughter.

Yes, it's set in Hawaii. I've got a fair way to go yet before i can comment on the story. :)

I hadn't even heard of Virals, but it looks interesting. :D
