Falling off the Rock of Gibraltar is not a laughing matter, as Gideon Oliver will testify to. When Gideon and his wife Julie travel to Gibraltar for the Annual conference of the International Paleoanthropoligical Society they have a lot of surprises awaiting them. Gideon is known as the Skeleton Detective and there is a lot of detecting to do on Gibraltar.

The anniversary of the discovery of the skeleton of a human woman clutching the skeleton of a part-Neanderthal child is going to be celebrated by the attendees of this conference. The story of Gibraltar Woman Gibraltar Boy is one that has fascinated people since the initial discovery. Ivan Gunderson who funded the original excavation was to receive several awards during the conference.

Not long after Gideon and Julie arrive in Gibraltar strange things begin to happen and Gideon begins to have doubts about the death of Sheila Chan who died at the site in 2005. Gideon confers with his old friend Fausto who is a detective on Gibraltar. The more information Gideon and Fausto dig up the more certain they are that there is something very bad going on in Gibraltar.

Uneasy Relations is the latest in the Gideon Oliver series. This is the first book Iíve read in this series so I have a lot of catching up to do. I learned a lot of new words and a lot about Gibraltar. The author kept me guessing right up to the end of the book.
