Editorial Reviews

Review

The story opens with Frankie still preparing for the defense of her doctoral dissertation. But MacFarlane has more problems than that. It appears her manipulative ex-boyfriend is not dead but threateningly alive. And then her major professor is the victim of a mailbox bomb, possibly intended for MacFarlane. And that is just the beginning of the mayhem. --Arizona Daily Star Try getting your doctorate--in geology, no less--as your friends and colleagues are being attacked and murdered. Try finding out that your ex-fiance has been plagiarizing your work, and then discover that he's disappeared and might be dead. And then you still have to be able to tell creosote from andesite and basalt... An engaging read. --Tucson Weekly Wonderful ... Frankie suspects that a serial killer may be on the loose, a man who is so good at assuming new identities that he almost resembles the shape-changers of Native American myth. When Frankie is asked to join a geological expedition into the Mojave desert, she jumps at the chance to get away from the mayhem, but trouble follows her, with near-fatal results. --Mystery Scene

Format: Hardcover
Fascinating desert tales...I am really enjoying the blend of geology and mystery. Frankie has grown so much from a student searching for answers in book 1 to a professional PROVIDING the answers in book three. I hope she keeps them coming!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Elaine Greensmith Jordan on November 7, 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Miller's mystery novel is thrilling and engaging--the perfect book for a fun read. Frankie, the main character, centers the book and is eminently likeable--an important factor for me. She is funny and smart and enterprising. The western setting is amazingly realistic and the geology is not too heavy-handed. It added an interesting dimension as did the inner-workings of a University science department. I highly recommend!

This time we went to California along the coast, old stomping grounds for me. This time Frankie is in love and a fiancé. She kicks butt right along with her two hunky male cohorts. I can't wait to see what happens next!
