Vulcanologist Frances Nelson, heroine of Weeping Waters, has moved on from New Zealand and her Maori lover, Tori, to work with an international scientific team assessing the danger levels of Mt Vesuvius, the volcano responsible for the ancient destruction of Pompeii. When lovers kiss in the crater of Stromboli, they ignite a fire that will last forever ... Vulcanologist Frances Nelson is in Italy to work with an international team assessing the world's most dangerous volcano, Mt Vesuvius, responsible for the destruction of ancient Pompeii.. Instead of the straightforward scientific task she expects, Frances is thrust into a sinister web of nepotism as greed, corruption and Il Sistema fill the streets with violence and pollute the countryside with toxic waste. to her horror, she realises her work is being compromised, her team's findings suppressed, and the people of southern Italy put into a perilous situation. A vivid and compelling story unfolds, drenched with flavours of Italy, the ghosts of the past and the spice of dangerous passions in the streets of Naples and the Aeolian Islands. Meanwhile, the tragic events of a fatal explosion on White Island, in New Zealand, provide a dramatic emotional counterpoint. the shadow of her recent past adds poignance to a budding relationship with a colleague, providing a romantic twist to this fast-paced contemporary novel.
