Spider Bones by Kathy Reichs

This 2010 novel is one in a series featuring the cast of characters surrounding the forensic anthropology Temperance (Tempe) Brennan, who is usually found dividing her time between Montreal and her native North Carolina: the Fox television series “Bones” is based upon the character of Tempe at a younger age. The rather intriguing plot starts with an investigation of fingerprints of a man who has died during autoerotic asphyxiation, but the deceased's fingerprints mysteriously indicate a match to a North Carolinian who supposedly died in Vietnam in 1968. She takes off with her daughter to Hawaii (tough gig!) to seek the help of an old friend who works at the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC), where the mission is to find the remains of American war dead and bring them home. There Tempe's co-worker/former main squeeze and his offspring join them on the island.
