Forensic geologists Cassie Oldfield and Walter Shaws embark on a perilous hunt–tracking a terrorist who has stolen radioactive material that is hotter than the desert in August. He threatens to release it in America’s most fragile national park, Death Valley.

But first he must stop the geologists who are closing in.

As the hunt turns dangerous, Cassie and Walter will need grit along with their field skills to survive this case. For they are up against more than pure human malice. The unstable atom–in the hands of an unstable man–is governed by Murphy’s Law. Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.

And it does.

Read Sample

Toni Dwiggins has done magazine work, both fiction and non. She’s author of a US History textbook, and has contributed to texts in the sciences. She’s done tech-writing for the Silicon Valley computer industry, and that experience hatched an idea that became her first novel, about an attempt to sabotage the nation’s telephone system (INTERRUPT, published by TOR Books).

She went in a different direction with her second novel, BADWATER, into the world of rocks and radiation. Always a rock collector, she became hooked on geology, and then came across a textbook on forensic geology and was further hooked. She found a generous forensic geologist who showed her around his lab and taught her the basics.

And then one day she was looking through old camping photos and came across pics of a trip to Death Valley, and thought: now there’s a place to set a story.

And then she learned that—on the perimeter of Death Valley National Park—there once was a radioactive waste dump.
