First things first...what the heck is a forensic geologist?
Consider: A man is murdered. An unusual rock is found at the scene. Where did it originate? What does it say about this murder? Who you gonna call? A forensic geologist.
Requirements: curious, a little geeky, good at puzzles, seeks justice, employs humor when the going gets dicey, strong in mind and body but not kick-ass (must survive threats, but believably).
Oh yeah, and owns good hiking boots. The job covers some very rough ground.
Forensic geologists Cassie Oldfield and Walter Shaws find mystery, suspense, and thrills in:
QUICKSILVER: "As Oldfield and Shaws help one of the brothers locate the other in the lovingly-described Sierra wilderness, the tension mounts..." (ScienceThrillers.com)
BADWATER: "The mystery kept me guessing, the suspense made me sweat, and the pace was at times as blistering as the heat in Death Valley." (Good Book Alert)
VOLCANO WATCH: "The first half is structured like a mystery...turns into pure thriller with enough heat and ash for any action fan." (ScienceThrillers.com)
