About the Author

Doug and Linda Raber are scientists who have spent their careers investigating the interplay of cutting-edge science and U.S. foreign and domestic policy.
After graduating with bachelor's and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry from Dartmouth and the University of Michigan, Doug spent 20 years on the chemistry faculty at the University of South Florida. In 1990, he moved to Washington, D.C., as Director of the Board on Chemical Sciences & Technology at the National Academy of Sciences, where he directed studies on topics ranging from chemistry research and development, to forensic analysis of bombings, to combatting terrorism. He is a sought-after consultant in science policy arenas.
Linda graduated in chemistry and history from the College of William & Mary and began her career as a legislative aide in the Senate before moving to a chemistry research position at the National Institutes of Health. She worked as a reporter at Chemical & Engineering News for more than 20 years before going solo in 2010.
The Rabers have homes in both the Nation's capital and in West Virginia, near the two ends of the C&O Canal that runs alongside the Potomac River. Both locations serve as backdrops for FACE OF THE EARTH, their first novel.

I enjoyed Face of the Earth by Doug Raber and certainly did not want it to end. I could see the two main characters in many more situations in the future. This story line is compelling and addicting, the tale told quickly, but with great detail.

This is usually not the genre of books that I read, but I enjoyed this book. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. The characters, places and plots seemed real to me. The writing is is great. If you like a good thriller than this book is for you. I won this book from Goodreads First Reads
