I have read several mysteries by Sarah Andrews. She is excellent at writing about landscapes, geology, and the science v creationism debate - and here she has the canvas of the Grand Canyon to work with. But the mystery is perfunctory and even a doofus such as I was instantly able to see whodunnit. This would have been better as a nonfiction book about rafting the Grand Canyon - I would really have enjoyed that. ( )

Sarah Andrews' Em Hansen, forensic geologist returns on a Grand Canyon raft trip. This book is more appreciated for its sense of place and description of what it is like for a geologist to be in the canyon but the mystery is ok too. Fans of previous books will enjoy developments in Em's personal life as well. I've rafted the canyon in a group of geologists, so I can say she gets that part right. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031267659X, Hardcover)

Rivers, oceans, streams, lakes—it doesn’t matter what shape it takes, Em Hansen is terrified of the water. She hasn’t shared her phobia with her new husband, Fritz, and when his best friend, Tiny, organizes a month-long, private, white-water rafting trip through the Grand Canyon as a wedding gift, she can’t tell him how awful the trip sounds. Fritz and Tiny cobble together a party of fourteen people for the trip, but at the last minute, Tiny finds himself in the hospital and has to miss the trip. He fills his spot with George “Wink” Oberley, ostensibly a geology Ph.D. candidate at Princeton and expert river rafter, but Em immediately suspects there’s more to his story.

Then the rafting trip Em had been trying so hard to enjoy veers further off course than she had ever expected: Someone disappears from their party, and a dead body washes up downstream. Now it’s up to Em to figure out what happened—and whether she and her husband and stepson are sharing rafts, food supplies, and tents with a murderer.

Rock Bottom, the latest in Sarah Andrews’s beloved Em Hansen series, will delight readers with its breathtaking scenery and riveting mystery.

A white water trip through the Grand Canyon goes off-course when Em Hansen's husband is accused of murdering a fellow rafter.
