*From Sibella Giorello‘s ‘THE RIVERS RUN DRY’~*Armies of cedar and fir and hemlock marched up the foothillsof the Cascade Mountains, long limbs glowing with a peculiar shade of green I’d seen only once before:  when a six-carat emerald rolled across a stainless steel examination tray in the FBI’s materials analysis lab.  That gem’s green facets glowed with a hue so verdant, so luscious, it whispered sibilant promises in the ears of greedy men.”

*Here’s Today’s Teaser…

You got the film?”
I lifted the box and we walked down the hall.
“A tall, scowling man stepped from the management offices…“You put that stuff down right now.”“The warrant’s signed by a federal judge,” Jack said, trying to get past him. “Get out of my way.” “What did you say to me?” The man stepped into Jack’s path, baring his teeth.

It was one of those primal confrontations where you can hear the fuse getting lit, heading toward detonation.
I wasn’t about to let Jack ruin this search.”

*Sibella Giorello‘s Raleigh Harmon series Book 2*

When a routine case turns deadly, forensic geologist Raleigh Harmon finds her career on the rocks…and her life at stake. 

Special Agent Raleigh Harmon is good at her job, but not as good at bureau politics. As one of the few females on the team, she finds herself in a strange land when she’s transferred from Richmond to drought-stricken Seattle. When a hiker suddenly goes missing and a ransom note arrives, Raleigh realizes there’s no time for transitions. Vowing to find the missing college girl, she must rely on her forensic geology skills to uncover the truth, leaving no stone unturned.

  1. Ooooh, this sounds good! I'm on a Bones kick, so Forensic – anything makes me want to read it. And the teaser sounds like it's a high tension book. I'd better wait until after my exams to read it :p

    Thanks for having dropped by my blog!

  2. I like the Pacific Northwest setting, even though drought in Seattle does seem unlikely. (I think drought might be too strong a term for “decrease in water suppply.”) However, I like books that feature women in jobs that are traditionally held by men. Sounds like a good story.

  3. I didn't even catch the drought in Seattle phrase! I do like the idea of geology playing a role in the investigation, though! I like the cover, too! Does this work as a stand-along?

  4. Actually, the Pacific Northwest can experience droughts, although a drought there may not be quite as dry as a drought in southern California.

    Good teaser.
