Kurzbeschreibung

Januar 2004 Worldwide Library Mysteries (Buch 481)

When Massachusetts Congresswoman Margaret Hurley is killed by a hit-and-run driver, speculation on the "accident" intrigues the sharp mind of Gloria Lamerino. A physicist turned forensic expert for the Revere police, she notes that the victim died just before she was to cast a critical vote regarding the government helium reserves.

Aware of the promising use of helium in cutting-edge technologies, Gloria's suspicion falls on the CEO of a software company, reaping big profits from the helium mining operation. But another murder leads her to wonder if the crimes may be of a more personal nature. Working feverishly to decipher the clue the victim left, Gloria makes the stunning connection between the truth and the killer—an equation for murder that may prove fatal.

As a physicist who loves mysteries, I enjoyed this 2nd Minichino story tied to the Periodic Table for several reasons: first, its credible science core embedded in industrial and political intrigue; second, for the real-life portrayal of scientists, police detectives and assorted friends of Gloria Lamerino, a retired Physics Professor recycled into a sharp amateur detective; and finally for the wonderful local color of Revere, as an ethnic suburb of Boston reinventing itself, but remembered with nostalgia by a native daughter of the 50's. There are many enjoyable and educational nuggets of science (both Physics and Chemistry) and mini-bios of Italian-American scientists embedded in this mystery. As a woman physicist, I had many "Aha!" experiences in this second book, as in the first Minichino Hydrogen murder mystery. Best of all, I identified with its feminist outlook, although in Minichino's Equal Opportunity mysteries, women can not only use knowledge and logic to detect and reason, but also to murder...I highly recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Warning: This murder series is addictive 15. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you like politics, science and a well-plotted mystery, then you are in for a treat in this second of a series. Intelligent and appealing heroine, Gloria Lamerino, continues to evolve in this novel that makes one glad that there are so many possibilities in the periodic tables. The series expands one's knowledge of scientific in an almost seamless fashion. Science's loss with the retirement of the physicist/author is fiction writing's gain. Be careful, once you read one in the series, you will want to read more.

I have enjoyed both 'The Hydrogen Murder' and 'The Helium Murder', and intend to order 'The Lithium Murder'. These books are a refreshing change from many other mystery novels coming out today. They are light and entertaining, and focus more on characters and science, rather than forensic details and gratuitous violence and vulgar language. However, there is one detail in this book that keeps annoying me. I wonder if the author has been back to Massachusetts much in the last 30 years. Because it's probably been that long since cars in MA had front license plates. In the first chapter, there is a description of a car heading towards someone and they see the front plate. Later, there is a scene where the heroine walks down the street looking at front license plates. MA used to issue two plates, but when they did, the sequencing of letters and numbers was very different than it is today. When a series relies as heavily on local atmosphere as this one does, details like this can really affect credibility. That said, I would still definitely recommend these books to other mystery lovers.

1.0 von 5 Sternen langweilig 25. November 2013

Eine Protagonistin, die man nicht (be-)greifen kann. Die Ironie kommt nicht rüber; keine Spannung außer der Mordszene, danach geht's bergab.

Not at the level of Christie, but a very good read. Plot and characters simple but it worked for me. Good book for a rainy day with a mug of hour chocolate.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Helium takes a turn 31. Mai 2014

Good twist to the plot. Ading more details on the production or mining of helium would have added some technical interest
