10. März 2004 Gloria Lamerino Mysteries (Buch 6)
Gloria Lamerino's goddaughter, Mary Catherine Galigani ("MC" to her friends), needs a change in her life. She decides to move back to her hometown of Revere, Massachusetts, thereby ridding herself of both an abusive relationship and an unfulfilling job in Houston, Texas. At least that's the plan.

When two homicides disrupt MC's peaceful return to Revere, Gloria applies her not inconsiderable detecting skills to help the police solve the crimes. At the same time, Gloria must face the medical problems of her partner, Detective Matt Gennaro, and the next steps in their relationship. In this sixth periodic table mystery, Gloria delves behind the scenes into the worlds of nanotechnology and show horses, and unwittingly uncovers a crime ring larger than the distance between Texas and Massachusetts.

Praise for Camille Minichino's Mysteries Featuring Gloria Lamerino

"An impressive series."
--Publishers Weekly

"Camille Minichino is smart and funny--an absolute delight!"
--Tamar Myers, author of Gruel and Unusual Punishment

"Camille Minichino manages to take a retired physicist sleuth and the periodic table and through some strange chemical process turn them into a fast-paced, fun, and even sexy mystery!"
--Rhys Bowen, author of Evan's Gate

"Enough clues to give the intelligent reader some guesses at the solution, a dash of romance, and (what a relief) a heroine who doesn't jog."
--Charlene Weir, author of Murder Takes Two

"Minichino's touch is perfect--light, deft, and full of detail. And her heroine, the snooping, good-hearted, savvy Gloria Lamerino, is a wonderfully unique and loveable creation. Open this book and you will be caught. Finish it, and you will be left awaiting anxiously for the next installment of the Periodic Table Mystery series."
--Roland Merullo, author of Revere Beach Boulevard

"A solid, grown-up series, well plotted and well peopled, with dialogue that keeps you smiling."
--Shelley Singer, author of Royal Flush

"Gloria Lamerino is my kind of heroine: independent, resourceful, intelligent, good-natures--and, best of all, real."
--Penny Warner, author of Blind Side

"Physicist Gloria Lamerino is both an intelligent and appealing heroine who's impossible not to like."
--Susan Holtzer, author of The Wedding Game

5.0 von 5 Sternen a great cozy 5. September 2004

I enjoy Ms. Minichino's books. You can't help but learn a little about physics and she explains things quite well and in layman's terms.

This mystery involves "buckyballs", horses, research, computer ID chips and of course murder or murders. As if Gloria doesn't have enough to cope with, throw in cancer, friends in danger and a spiteful lover's sister. If you really like cozies, this is highly recommended!

5.0 von 5 Sternen fabulous crime thriller 29. Februar 2004
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
After retiring from her job as a research professor at a California college, physicist Gloria Lamerino returns to her hometown of Revere, Massachusetts. In her late fifties, she met the love of her life homicide detective Matt Geneva and after a two-year courtship, she moves into his home. Matt undergoes a physical that reveals he suffers from prostrate cancer.
Meanwhile Gloria, a police consultant, is forced to work with Matt's partner on a case that is very close to her heart. Her goddaughter M.C. Galigani, who left her teaching and research position in Houston, believes that her abusive ex-boyfriend Jake Powers is stalking her. Her former coworker Wayne Gallen is the one who shows up at her apartment warning of the danger she is in because of a misdirected email. When a private investigator posing as a student of M.C. is found murdered in Revere, Gloria really starts to worry. Between taking care of Matt and connecting the dots on an illegal medical experiment run by someone who doesn't hesitate to kill those who get in his way, Gloria is busier than when she worked two jobs on the Pacific coast.
Two of the reasons Camille Minichino's mysteries are popular is that they are intelligent and believable. The heroine is a police consultant who handles herself in a professional manner, which gives her legitimacy to readers who appreciate some realism in their novels. Superb plotting, likeable characters and enough romance to appeal to fans of that genre turn THE CARBON MURDER into a fabulous crime thriller

4.0 von 5 Sternen Retired research professor turned sleuth 9. Oktober 2005
Von Dawn Dowdle - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Gloria Lamerino is now a police consultant. She is a retired research professor and physicist. Her goddaughter M. C. Galigani believes her ex-boyfriend Jake Powers is stalking her. Wayne Gallen, a former co-worker, shows up to warn her that she's in danger because of some misdirected e-mail.

Then a student of M.C.'s that was an undercover private investigator is murdered. Gloria is very concerned about the whole situation.

Gloria's boyfriend, Matt Geneva, is a police detective. He isn't very involved in this case as he has just been diagnosed with prostrate cancer. Gloria is torn between helping M. C. and taking care of Matt.

Gloria uncovers an illegal medical experiment run by someone who doesn't seem to stop at murder. Can she protect M. C. while bringing everything to light?

This was the first I've read in this series. I will definitely be reading more of this series. Gloria is such a likeable character. I was so worried that since this series is the periodic table series, there would be too much scientific talk. That wasn't the case. She uses her knowledge of science, but the book is very enjoyable to those who don't know science.

I highly recommend this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Smart and Witty "Periodic Table" Mystery 28. Oktober 2004
Von L. Kelly - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Buckyballs, show horses, and cancer treatments. This sounds like an unlikely combination, but it's exactly what's offered in "The Carbon Mystery." Retired physicist turned crime consultant returns to solving murders in Revere, Massachusetts in this sixth entry in Camille Minichino's "Periodic Table" mysteries. These great mysteries feature the intelligent, very likable retired physics reasearcher Dr. Gloria Lamerino, who works as a consultant to the Revere Police Department when her scientific expertise is needed.

In this story, Gloria's god-daughter Mary Catherine (M.C.) Galigani has just moved back to her hometown of Revere from Houston, Texas. M.C. is looking for a new job and is also trying to get away from a boyfriend who had been abusive in the past. M.C. is pursued relentlessly by a stalker in the story, and quickly several murder victims are found, all from the Houston area. Fearing that M.C. is in danger, Dr. Lamerino is anxious to find the murderer and put him or her behind bars.

I had my reservations about reading The Carbon Murder by Camille Minichino. After all, my last science classes were high school physics and chemistry (earning a C and B, respectively). But Gloria Lamerino is an affable, retired scientist who mixes her pleasure of physics with her P.I. nosiness in a clear, engaging storyline. Gloria has left California and returned to her native Revere, Massachusetts, after thirty years. Her god-daughter, Mary Catherine (MC), has moved back from Houston, Texas after quitting her job. Then a detective in one of MC's classes ends up murdered in a marsh. An old boyfriend follows MC to Revere and stalks her, ostensibly to warn her of some danger. While helping MC, Gloria runs into her own life crises, including her fiancé Matt diagnosed with prostate cancer. Gloria is a warm, tough lady who uses her wits to solve murders and to teach high school kids physics. This is one title in an original, well-plotted series adapting each element of the periodic table as its theme. Recommended.
