"This is a lively, emotionally resonant celebration of rocks as well as humans' ways of connecting with and learning about the natural world."—Publishers Weekly
"Another excellent whodunit with a charming, snarky sleuth.”— Kirkus, starred review
EMLA will be closed from Dec. 23 through the New Year's weekend so Joan and I can relax, enjoy our families and friends, and read read read! (We might also be preparing a New Year's surprise for the agency, but shhh, don't tell.) We hope the rest of 2010 is warm and bright for all our clients, editors, colleagues, readers, and all, and we look forward to many happy things to come in 2011!
