Quicksilver

by Toni Dwiggins


A young man disappears in the California wilderness. He leaves behind a gold-flecked rock and a vial of toxic mercury. He is a misfit in the modern world, a throwback to Gold Rush days.

A venture capitalist–whose gold country is Silicon Valley–hires forensic geologists Cassie Oldfield and Walter Shaws to track his missing brother.

Following one of the ‘lost rivers’ of the Mother Lode, Cassie and Walter plunge into the dark history of the legendary lands, into the dark past of the brothers, into a poisonous sibling feud that threatens both lives and the land.

And they are not the only ones on the hunt.

Badwater

by Toni Dwiggins


Death Valley earns its name when a terrorist threatens to unleash lethal radioactive toxins–in America’s most fragile national park.

Forensic geologists Cassie Oldfield and Walter Shaws embark on a perilous mission to find and stop the terrorist. But this hunt pushes them to their limits. The summer desert is brutal. The material they seek is hotter than the desert in August–and they are each particularly vulnerable to its effects.

As the hunt turns dangerous, Cassie and Walter learn that 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.
