    I decided to read this after the author was tragically killed in a private plane crash I had previously read the first book in the series, and not entirely liked it, but I saw that this one had received much better marks and decided to try it out It is indeed much better, although I should probably have rewound at least 2 books back to 5 to truly get all the interpersonal relationships that are roiling around this book The mystery was pretty interesting, though there were some points that st I decided to read this after the author was tragically killed in a private plane crash I had previously read the first book in the series, and not entirely liked it, but I saw that this one had received much better marks and decided to try it out It is indeed much better, although I should probably have rewound at least 2 books back to 5 to truly get all the interpersonal relationships that are roiling around this book The mystery was pretty interesting, though there were some points that still puzzled me in the end The geology speak was getting a wee bit much so it was good that the author restrained herself where she did The interpersonal romance stuff wasdecent, it certainly added colour to the book There was a touch of melodrama that didn t 100% appeal to me.I guess my overall feeling is that this wasn t an overwhelming yes I must read all the others, but it certainly was a good book So tragic to read in the acknowledgments thanks to her husband and son, who were also killed in the plane crash RIP

    I finished this, but I could never really get into it It was the first book in the series I had read, maybe you have to read them in order The only character that I liked in the entire book was Jack the FBI agent The protagonist came across as not very bright, and the whole thing was kind of boring.

    Ummm I finished it.

    Ah, so much better than the previous book in the series Thank goodness While somewhat political in nature, this story was not bogged down preachiness or educating science That isn t to say there wasn t a great geological message to the story or that I didn t learn things about geology that I didn t know before reading the book, but this time it supported the story rather than overshadowing it In reading these series I find it is fairly common to find a title every now and again that isn t qu Ah, so much better than the previous book in the series Thank goodness While somewhat political in nature, this story was not bogged down preachiness or educating science That isn t to say there wasn t a great geological message to the story or that I didn t learn things about geology that I didn t know before reading the book, but this time it supported the story rather than overshadowing it In reading these series I find it is fairly common to find a title every now and again that isn t quite up to par with the others and I m glad to discover that was the case and that Andrews returned to form with this title

    I m reading these SO COMPLETELY out of order Ah well.This was a good one There s something about earthquakes and the terror they cause that I can really understand living in Northern CA and growing up near the geysers and all I like the switch in writing alternating characters in chapters , and I think my favorite parts were the earthquake quotes at the beginning of chapters It s natural to feel completely helpless when the ground you stand upon betrays you.A good, solid murder mystery N I m reading these SO COMPLETELY out of order Ah well.This was a good one There s something about earthquakes and the terror they cause that I can really understand living in Northern CA and growing up near the geysers and all I like the switch in writing alternating characters in chapters , and I think my favorite parts were the earthquake quotes at the beginning of chapters It s natural to feel completely helpless when the ground you stand upon betrays you.A good, solid murder mystery Nothing too special, but nothing awful or embarrassing An easy, enjoyable read

    This one was definitely better than the last one, that s for sure She manages to cram some geology, but it s much less educational film strippy The protagonist hit a bit close to home, with her unemployment, no career path, and age, but, well Plus it finally explained some important developments that I knew about but missed, accidentally having skipped three books Overall, it was good enough that I requested the next one from the library, whee.

    Definitely an enjoyable read, especially for rock hounds Picked this up because of a recommendation by Lee Allison, the former state geologist of Utah and current state geologist of Arizona Thanks, Lee

    If you like geology, you ll like the Em Hansen books They are all good and most are situated in the western states Good clean reads w enough plot to interest the reader and her people are well rounded Little violence, profanity and sexual situations.
