Currently reading Jane Harper's latest. The Dry and the Wet (Force of Nature), so now for the Cold (the Survivors). Always well written and entertaining.
Any suggestions? Always like an insiders view of the world. Someone who has experienced what they are writing about.(less)

Within moments his clothes were disappearing off his back as the fire alarm sounded briefly, before being silenced by the electrical fire created by the now uninsulated wires.(less)

Neanderthals

Rebecca Wragg Sykes has written a remarkable book about Neanderthals, sort of a scientific version of Jean Auel’s Clan of the Cave Bear. It is well worth a read for all geoscientists, plus any budding archeologists as geology, age dating and creating a story from snippets of information are integral to the book.  They\se processes are also critical to most of the work done by geoscientists.

“It was an interminably difficult job when talking to non-scientists. They did not want to know about the ifs and buts, nor the pedantic small difference between processes. Any hole in the ground was a sinkhole.”
Andy McGee, Sublime Murder

“They worship Anu, the god of all the gods, who gives their kings a divine right to rule, to collect possessions for themselves and take slaves. It is not a system of harmony with nature or equality between beings.”
