    I really like and feelconnected to Em with each book in this series She is snarky and witty and I frequently am amused by her observations There were several descriptions in this book that made me chuckle, but were equally effective at drawing an image I am certainly looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

    Forensic geologist Em Hansen uses her keen senses and fascinating scientific background to uncover the buried secrets of the most baffling murder cases Now Em travels to a Utah paleontology conference, where a renowned dinosaur expert is found brutally murdered making Em, his houseguest, the chief suspect Now, digging for clues amidst a canyon of suspects like a modern day Sherlock Holmes, Em s gotta catch a killer, clear her name, and save herself from becoming extinct back coverI Forensic geologist Em Hansen uses her keen senses and fascinating scientific background to uncover the buried secrets of the most baffling murder cases Now Em travels to a Utah paleontology conference, where a renowned dinosaur expert is found brutally murdered making Em, his houseguest, the chief suspect Now, digging for clues amidst a canyon of suspects like a modern day Sherlock Holmes, Em s gotta catch a killer, clear her name, and save herself from becoming extinct back coverI liked this book a bit less than the first four books in the series, when I had expected to like itthan most of them Paleontology Awfully close to archaeology only the items being sought and the hardness of the soil surrounding them are different the theorizing and internecine professional warfare are exactly the same so I settled down to read about digging out in the great outdoors Silly me didn t I realize that 340 pages of digging in the great outdoors would be BO riiing to most readers So of course there was muchpaleontological conference, suspicion falling upon our heroine, car chases and narrow escapes aconventional pardon the pun murder mystery, which our heroine eventually solves as usual.However, this book had a LOT of discourse about scientific methodology and philosophy vs creationism, a LOT of instructional dialog about how the former two work and why the latter doesn t, etc Imho, it was an overwhelming amount of trudging through to get to the action parts Maybe it s just me, but this book was published in 1999, and I think most readers are muchaware of at least the basic aspects of paleontology twenty years later I mean, there s been Jurassic Park, and Walking With Dinosaurs and Allosaurus , to name only a few And documentaries aplenty How could a reader these days not know at least the basics of paleontology There was also a good bit about the Mormon religion, and its splinter groups some of it very disquieting and painful to read But of course, splinter groups aren t the core of any religion, but the outlaws around the edges What was really unnerving was the incipient romance between our heroine and the Mormon policeman who was on the case How could either one of them ever contemplated a relationship between a good Mormon and a heretic atheist And how long could it possibly last

    This is a really good mystery involving Salt Lake City, geologists and paleontologists, Mormons, and of course, murder There are also some good musings on religion and life philosophy in it as well It is an engrossing read.

    A mystery featuring dinosaur fossil thieves, creationism, Mormons, and murder What s there not to like And, strangely, I found a marvelously insightful paragraph, instructing a technique for relaxation and stress release based on contemplation of our insignificance within the universe

    Interesting murder mystery Try finding another book with characters ranging from devout Mormons of Utah to vertebrate paleontologists


  7. Lindsay Luke Lindsay Luke says:

    Enjoyable Em Hansen forensic geologist mystery Em is invited to give a presentation at a convention in Salt Lake City by a famous paleontologist He turns up dead and she is a suspect In the course of finding the real killer, we get to learn about dinosaurs, paleontologists, and Mormons Let s just say there is dysfunction and a lack of social skills in the scientific dinosaur bone hunting community.

    Geologist Em Hansen has been invited to be a house guest and speaker at a paleontology conference by George Dishey But George gets murdered and Em becomes a suspect Throw in a handsome, young, Mormon police officer, and a list of strange characters as well as dinosaur bones and you have the makings of a mystery However, for me, it never really went anywhere I didn t buy the romance, and didn t find the mystery particularly compelling.


  9. Jack Jack says:

    Written back in the 1990s, this is a novel about a woman scientist in Utah who is accused of a murder She sciences her way out of some tough jams and along the way deals with her confusing affection for a Mormon cop Sort of hokey but the landscape descriptions made it worthwhile.

    I thought that this book was pretty good, but it didn t keep me on my toes like I thought it might.
