Bones of the Lost, by Kathy Reichs

Reichs's plotlines are always somewhat secondary to her didacticism (used in the best possible sense) for me.  I always feel like I've learned something from her books -- whether it's the omnipresent forensic science or her descriptions of troop transports and housing in Afghanistan.  This story begins with some Peruvian dog mummies and a dead hit-and-run victim, and includes a trip to Afghanistan, an exhumation, a military Article 32 hearing, and, at various times, a missing boyfriend, daughter and cat.
