"The best closing act of any book I have read in years."
(Wired.com Best Indie Whodunit)
Death Valley earns its name when a terrorist threatens to unleash lethal radioactive toxins -- in America's most fragile national park.
Forensic geologists Cassie Oldfield and Walter Shaws embark on a perilous mission to find and stop the terrorist. But this hunt pushes them to their limits. The summer desert is brutal. The material they seek is hotter than the desert in August--and they are each particularly vulnerable to its effects.
As the hunt turns dangerous, Cassie and Walter learn that they are up against more than pure human malice. The unstable atom--in the hands of an unstable man--is governed by Murphy's Law. Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.
And it does.
Biografía del autor
I'm a third-generation Californian who migrated from southern Cal to northern Cal. What I like most about my state is that one can go from the ocean to the mountains in one day, with a lunch stop in the desert. I like it so much I've set my forensic geology books in those settings. I'm author of a US History textbook, and have contributed to texts in the sciences. I've done tech-writing for the Silicon Valley computer industry, and that experience hatched an idea that became my first novel, about an attempt to sabotage the nation's telephone system. I went in a different direction with the Forensic Geology Series, taking mystery into outdoor adventure and thriller territory.
