Only a small pile of bones remained of a hiker who vanished in Washington State's Olympic National Park years ago - just enough for Gideon Oliver, the skeleton detective, to deduce that someone, or something, of superhuman strength had killed him. Now, a young woman has disappeared, and before Gideon can stop them, hundreds of people descend on the park looking for her - and Bigfoot.

Sometimes I just need to read a fun little thriller about lost treasure set in exotic locales, and Aaron Elkins' Loot was perfect-- especially since I've read books about the incredible work done by the Monuments Men during World War II. I've often wondered just how many stolen treasures are still hiding deep in mines and other hideaways, but I digress.
