Volcano Watch - Toni Dwiggins
Volcano Watch is the first book in the Forensic Geology Series. This is a stand-alone book though. No cliff hangers. This novel was free when I downloaded it. It's now $2.99 for the kindle. Murder and volcanoes make a volatile mix. Cassie Oldfield is a forensic geologist. Her hometown of Mammoth Lakes has been coexisting with their volcano since the town was founded. Now the volcano is starting to wake up. People are dying, but not from the volcano. Murder is a more immediate threat. The tension is palpable. This is a book I had a hard time putting down. My favorite quote from the book is with regards to the USGS volcano alert levels: "The Survey alert level WARNING does not do this justice. They need another level. HOLY SHIT." Very highly recommended.
