review 1: **I received this free in return for a review from Library Thing. The opinions expressed are my own.**A leading vulcanologist is killed in an eruption, but his wife is convinced it was murder. Was she right? A group of scientists who run a sort of detective agency agree to find out what happened. This one is set in the 90s and it shows, but it doesn't really hurt the story. What did make it less enjoyable for me was that I didn't really connect with the main character. The author gives her a back story, but it doesn't explain why she does this kind of work. She's a linguist or something. How does that translate into a private eye? And there's a lot of jargon in here that put me off the story. It reminded me a little of the show Bones, but without a lay character to ask the... morem to explain what the heck they were talking about and why they were doing what they were doing. Don't know if I'll read more or not, but I am curious to see how the author brought them into the present day.
review 2: 3 STARSYou can tell that this book was written in the past. So many changes in phones & computers. I would be interested in what the next book in the series will be like.I had a problem of connecting to the characters and caring about what happens to them.The story was good but a lot of science that made it hard for me to be interested.Its a clean read. A short story or novella.This is a different detective agency with a bunch of scientists and tech whizzes that solve cases.Thier client wants them to prove that her husband a famous volcano scientist was murdered. The police did not question his death was anything but a accident. A lot of volcano scientists die in explosions or eruptions. She had the body cremated before she thought it through.They take the case and try to back track and see who might have wanted him dead and why.I was given this ebook to read and asked to give a honest review of it when I had read it by Librarything.Published: Dec. 24, 2012 File Size: 209 KB ASIN: B00AZNXLH6 less
