Information on Author

Aaron Elkins
Long before forensics TV shows made the topic popular, Aaron Elkins was intriguing mystery fans with his Gideon Oliver ("the skeleton detective") series. As a forensic anthropologist, Oliver is called upon in each book to use his skills to identify the remains of murder victims and to help track down their killers.

Elkins has also written several mysteries about art curator Chris Norgren. With his wife Charlotte, Elkins has co-authored a series about woman golfer Lee Ofsted. His books have been translated into a dozen languages, have been Book of the Month Club selections, and have won several awards. In a recent interview, Elkins stated that his publishers are most interested in having him continue with the Gideon Oliver series, given the recent public interest in forensics topics.

Aaron Elkins has had careers as a boxer and as a professor of anthropology. He and Charlotte Elkins live in NW Washington State, the setting for some of the books. Others are given exotic foreign locations.
