Author Susan Cummins Miller moderates her mystery novel Chasm, part 6 of Miller’s Frankie MacFarlane mystery
Since Major John Wesley Powell first explored the Colorado River in a dory, geologists have been drawn to the
Grand Canyon. Frankie MacFarlane’s no exception. When her old friend, Dora Simpson, calls to ask Frankie to fill
in as geology professor for a small group of students taking a whitewater trip through the heart of the Canyon,
Frankie jumps at the chance. Eight days. One hundred and eighty-eight miles on the River. One mile deep into the
earth. Paradise. What could go wrong?
