Editorial Reviews


"Dwiggins is one of my favorite indie authors. She writes quality stuff, and she creates stories in a niche I simply love. The niche incorporates a type of science I've not seen in other novels: forensic geology. And not in an urban, police/FBI setting. The investigative team Cassie Oldfield and Walter Shaws work out in the wild... The tension mounts... Quicksilver is a splendid story for science thriller fans."

"(A) unique feature of this forensic thriller series is that the protagonists themselves are not the only ones in danger from the murderer but the murderer is plotting a more sinister crime that could have cataclysmic results ... It is up to Oldfield and Shaws to stop the perpetrator before there is catastrophic damage, which makes for an exciting read."
     -- A-Thrill-a-Week (forensic, medical, and techno-thriller series reviews)

"A great mystery adventure"
     -- The Vuze Blog

"This fast paced, well crafted story intertwined with geology and science brings the gold rush reality to light in a new way. A must read for anyone wanting a mystery layered with suspicion, sibling rivalry, family dysfunction, murder, gunplay, suicidal tensions, and environmental catastrophes... I couldn't put it down!"

"Fascinating, terrifying - like playing with mercury."

"You gotta love a geologist that gets in this much trouble! If you love a good, action packed adventure, this is it. If you thought there wasn't much involved in mining gold, think again. That alone is scary."

"An amazing rollercoaster ride!"

"I love a mystery set in the outdoors! This story has all the elements I look for in a mystery thriller: dangerous and conflicting relationships, the joy of puzzling over the psychological twists of character, and the scientific acumen of the protagonists... Lots of suspense and surprising developments."

"Neat CSI stuff."
