I, too, am a female geologist working in the oil industry. I actually began reading this book while I was out on location at the wellsite. I was riveted by the very first sentence! I began looking over my shoulder, wondering if the driller or mudlogger had murderous thoughts. Her description of the mechanics of drilling wells and explanations of geology were accurate yet easily understood by those not familiar with either geology or drilling. I enjoyed reading about another woman handled being the lone woman in a male-dominated field. I'm hooked and will be reading the rest of her books

This was a fun and nostalgic book for me to read. Like the main character, I, too, am a female with a geology degree. Although I never worked as a mudlogger, I did spend a summer at a geology field camp near Greybull, which is mentioned in the book. If you love Wyoming like I do and are interested in the mechanics of well drilling, then the setting adds much secondary interest to the main story line--two suspicious deaths within a week. I plan to read more of this author's books because so many of her experiences parallel mine and it's fun to see the world through another female geologist's eyes.

All of the books in Andrew's mystery series are gently didactic, nicely paced, educational and always fun to read.

This is the first in the series of books by Sarah Andrews which feature heroine, Em Hansen. It's a great start and includes a quirky but successful combination of sleuth, geologist, environmentalist, and gutsy woman.

I can't say enough good about the Em Hansen mysteries. It's easy to get into the character and hard to put the books down. Tensleep is another winner!
