Mother NatureBook - 1997
Against her better judgment, Em - broke, unemployed, and desperate for something to take her mind off her father's recent death - accepts this less-than-ideal job: A U.S. senator sends her to Santa Rosa, California, to investigate his daughter Janet's death. He thinks something Janet uncovered at her job as a geologist for an environmental consulting firm got her killed, and he wants Em to find out what it was. What at first seems like a straightforward case gets more confusing and more dangerous as Em deals with the employees at Janet's old job, Janet's close-mouthed friends, and the increasingly hard-to-get-ahold-of senator. Not to mention the rain, which never seems to stop, or Em's mixed-up family, which is often on her mind when she should be worried about herself. It's enough to make her crazy - if the case doesn't kill her first.
