    This is the 9th book in the series, but I think it can be a stand alone book the author does a good job of tying in things that happened previously Since Em Hansen is a geologist working with paint chips for fraud detection and poisoning purposes, there is a lot of science in this book The art parts would be interesting to people curious about how paint colors were made The geology information was fun to read, because much of the story is set in my home state of PA and I have been to Wyomin This is the 9th book in the series, but I think it can be a stand alone book the author does a good job of tying in things that happened previously Since Em Hansen is a geologist working with paint chips for fraud detection and poisoning purposes, there is a lot of science in this book The art parts would be interesting to people curious about how paint colors were made The geology information was fun to read, because much of the story is set in my home state of PA and I have been to Wyoming, Em s home base

    In this book, Em Hansen is going for her Masters in Forensic Geology and looking for a topic for her thesis Her friend Faye introduces her to an old school friend who wants to quietly confirm that an heirloom Remington painting is a fake He hopes to do this by having Em analyze the minerals in the paint and show that they arerecent than those Remington would have used While researching this, Em discovers that members of his family seem to be dying and or becoming ill from lead poisoning In this book, Em Hansen is going for her Masters in Forensic Geology and looking for a topic for her thesis Her friend Faye introduces her to an old school friend who wants to quietly confirm that an heirloom Remington painting is a fake He hopes to do this by having Em analyze the minerals in the paint and show that they arerecent than those Remington would have used While researching this, Em discovers that members of his family seem to be dying and or becoming ill from lead poisoning, and that he is being investigated for art theft by the FBI The geology and art history are explained along the way Em is studying in Utah, but the bulk of the story takes place in central Pennsylvania Lancaster , Balti, and DC The story takes place in 2003 or 2004 In the course of her investigation, Em visits the National Gallery of Art and sees an exhibit of nocturnes by Remington I didn t see it when it was here, but it is now available online, Long before lead paint in Balti was in the news, the story features a family that made their money manufacturing lead paint in Balti, and people are poisoned with a shade called Balti yellow that is no longer made because of it s toxicity.Em s personal life is kind of a mess, and she is annoying in some ways It doesn t really surprise me that someone in this field and with her experiences would be this way, though The drawbacks in the story arethan made up for by the discussions of art and geology

    I enjoyed this book muchthan the last one in the series This book picks up several months after the last book, Killer Dust, left off Em Hansen gets a job trying to identify if a famous painting is a forgery by using the pigments in the paint Her investigation leads her to Washington, D.C., and rural Pennsylvania She doesn t trust her client, but she needs the money and is hoping to use the work to finish her Master s thesis as well The painting in question was done by Remington, a fam I enjoyed this book muchthan the last one in the series This book picks up several months after the last book, Killer Dust, left off Em Hansen gets a job trying to identify if a famous painting is a forgery by using the pigments in the paint Her investigation leads her to Washington, D.C., and rural Pennsylvania She doesn t trust her client, but she needs the money and is hoping to use the work to finish her Master s thesis as well The painting in question was done by Remington, a famous western artists from the 1800s, and has been in the client s family for many years In doing research on pigments, Em visits museums and laboratories and meets with people to help her understand the pigments, and minerals from which they came Along the way, she meets members of the client s family and suspects something is not right It is up to Em to discover the truth behind her suspicians and prevent another murder This story ties art and geology by investigating the source and chemical make up of pigments used in painting both now and in the past It was interesting to learn how many pigments were toxic and may have been the demise of several famous painters It was also fun to read how some technologies that seems so common now were just getting off the ground back when this was written in 2003 remember dial up internet that tied up your phone line This story was a huge improvement over the last book in the series because it tied up all the loose ends at the end

    I picked this up for something new to read when I saw it on the library shelf and was pleasantly surprised that I liked it and read it at every opportunity Em Hanson, the heroine, is a forensic geologist and goes off on several different tangents in this novel, some of which does not tie together for me, but still the story was a good one about art forgery and FBI investigation, schoolwork, and getting a life, etc The ending was a turnaround and justifiable Some of the technical geological an I picked this up for something new to read when I saw it on the library shelf and was pleasantly surprised that I liked it and read it at every opportunity Em Hanson, the heroine, is a forensic geologist and goes off on several different tangents in this novel, some of which does not tie together for me, but still the story was a good one about art forgery and FBI investigation, schoolwork, and getting a life, etc The ending was a turnaround and justifiable Some of the technical geological and chemical descriptions were really beyond my knowledge and I did slide over them at times Still, educational

    I think this is one of the strongest Em Hansen outings yet, mostly because the main character is finally finally getting her act together It s one thing to have a flawed main character, but Hansen s character flaws have beenof a distraction for the past few novels than traits that flesh out a character.Love the Salt Lake City touches I wish there had been a littledenouement other than I decided to grow up and not get myself into stupid trouble.

    I enjoyed this book on several levels I enjoyed reading about the use of minerals in making oil paints I knew this was how it was done early on, but never thought about it s use in authenticating oil paintings I also enjoyed reading about Pennsylvania My daughter worked as a preservationist in Pennsylvania for several years, and there seemed a lot of information that she would have used in her work Thirdly, I enjoyed the story which put all I was interested in together.

    I can t believe I have read 9 of these definitely should not have read the last 3 right in a row I m annoyed with her inability to stay in a relationship or decide what she is doing with her life The story about the paintings is interesting but not enough to keep me from being annoyed with her.

    Started slow for me I m less interested in romantic entanglements And Em seems so confused But once we got into the pigments and chemistry with the delightful old geezers, I was hooked Plan to read the other 8.
