Synopsis: Sarah Andrews' newest geological mystery finds geologist and investigator Em Hansen helping out the Salt Lake City police on the murder of a fellow geologist. Dumped in a gravel quarry, his arms and legs removed and his face bashed in so he'll be unrecognizable, Em IDs him anyway because of a strange tattoo--a geological map of the world--she spots on his body: It's Afton McWain, a controversial figure who worked in big oil in Colorado but who now works in the field of water and droughts.
In Andrews' universe, things are never what they seem, and the murder may have as much to do with McWain's personal life (his ex or his common-law wife?) or his overzealous dedication to the "green" lifestyle (the traditional neighbors of his liberal ranch)? as it does with his job. Either way, the combination of suspense and science makes this novel another winner.

From the Back Cover: (AUTHOR PHOTO ON BACK COVER)

YOU NEVER MISS YOUR WATER--TILL YOUR TIME RUNS OUT...
For Em Hansen, things couldn't be better professionally and personally. She's got a full-time gig with the Utah Geological Survey; she's the go-to forensic geologist for state law enforcement--and a long-simmering acquaintance with a handsome pilot is turning into more than friendship. But when she's called in to investigate how a massive quarry wall collapsed, she's shocked to discover that the viciously-mutilated body that was trapped beneath belongs to none other than Em's old colleague, Afton McWain, an oil tycoon-turned-controversial geological consultant.

It doesn't take much digging for Em to uncover a deluge of motives for Afton's murder--from his scandalous "three's company" private life...to his one-man investigation into a mysterious water shortage and a billion-dollar real-estate fraud. And with adversaries as treacherous as a sudden canyon flood, Em also must employ her cutting-edge skills to explore the dark territory of the heart, where love and loyalty are the most deadly mirages of all...

"Compelling."
