From Publishers Weekly

In Minichino's eighth chemistry-themed mystery (after 2005's The Nitrogen Murder), Gloria Lamerino, a physicist, and her new husband, homicide detective Matt Gennaro, head to New York City for a much-anticipated Christmas holiday. But Gloria gets sidetracked from shopping and sightseeing when she discovers a murdered woman in the apartment of Matt's niece, Lori Pizzano, a documentary filmmaker. The victim is Lori's camerawoman, Amber Keenan, whose ambition and schemes could have provoked a number of suspects. Lori and Amber had been working on an environmental sciences documentary film about the ozone layer, and had encountered corporations that could be ignoring governmental safety regulations and using strong-arm tactics. Is Lori in danger, too? But Amber's other gig was as a photographer for a PI, and she may have aggravated more than a few questionable characters with her snooping. Cozy fans will find this a breezy summer read. (Aug.)

From Booklist

In this eighth in the Periodic Table series, newly married physicist Gloria Lamerino and her homicide-detective husband, Matt Gennaro, have left Revere, Massachusetts, to travel to New York City. With Matt at a law-enforcement convention, Gloria is free to enjoy New York with friends Rose and Frank Galigani. Then a colleague of Matt's niece, documentary filmmaker Lori Pizzano, is found dead in Lori's loft, and Lori is a possible suspect. Gloria, naturally, can't resist investigating. Facts about ozone and its effects on industrial workers are woven seamlessly into the story, as Lori shares her research on her upcoming documentary with Gloria, and Gloria reflects further on oxygen and the environment. Sympathetic characters, the examination of the close friendship between Gloria and Rose, and plenty of humor enliven an engrossing story framed by interesting information on the science of ozone.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Big Apple Vacation Combines Work, Pleasure, and Murder 26. September 2006
Von L. Kelly - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The eighth installment of Minichino's Periodic Table mysteries finds retired physicist and part-time sleuth Gloria Lamerino on a pre-Christmas trip to New York City with her new husband Matt Gennaro and their best friends Rose and Frank Galigani. The trip was supposed to be a pre-holiday shopping and sight-seeing getaway, combined with a police conference for Revere Police detective Matt. However, when Gloria pays a visit to Matt's niece Lori Pizzano, a documentary film maker, and discovers Lori's dying camerawoman Amber Keenan in Lori's studio/loft, Gloria and Matt suddenly find themselves searching for Amber's murderer. It turns out that there are lots of reasons why Amber could have been murdered, which range from the corporate secrets regarding ozone emissions which Lori and Amber were investigating in their latest documentary, to victims of Amber's blackmailing schemes which she was running on the side. Matt's niece Lori finds herself as a murder suspect, so of course Matt and Gloria want to find the real murderer. The mystery in this story is a good one and very enjoyable, with a soltuion which took me by surprise. As usual in this series, author Minichino mixes in quite a bit of scientific information in the plot, with the subject this time being ozone emissions from welding.

Set against a festive pre-Christmas New York setting, this latest entry in the series is one of the best of the series so far. Whether you are an old friend of Dr. Gloria Lamerino or new to the series, this is a story that all mystery fans are sure to enjoy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's a Gas 17. Oktober 2006
Von Robert A. Olson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Gloria Lamarino is glorious again as the physicist turned slueth in her newest science-based adventure. While a somewhat unlikely "heroine," Gloria, in her latest adventure, is becoming as unforgettable a character as Miss Marple. Once again, she has moved beyond her upper room roost above a Revere, Massachusetts funeral home. Now, instead of visiting friends in California, she and her new husband, Matt, find themselves in New York City. While Matt attends a conference, Gloria discovers a murder amidst old friends. Naturally, an element is involved -- oxygen. There are many twists and turns before the case is solved and the miscreant is brought to justice. But the real fun is in the wonderful characters that Minichino has created. To enter their world is a delight.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Oxygen Murder 27. September 2007
Von Linda G. Lunsford - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I absolutely love Camille Minichino's books, and The Oxygen Murders is no exception. The heroine is so much like me--older, a teacher, unsure about men--until Gennaro--I just think she's great. Not only are but books entertaining but also a good learning experience. The most amazing things is that she can write entire books without using sex and profanity. They are there, but she has enough vocabulary available to her that she knows how to express the feeling without the "explicit sex and language," as so many other writers do. I read their books, too, but I can't wait for the next Gloria Lamerino adventure. Linda Lunsford
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Series that Stays Strong 20. Juli 2007

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It's Christmastime and retired physicist Gloria Lamberino is spending it in New York city with her new husband and best friends, Rose and Frank Galigani. While Gloria's husband Matt Revere, a Massachusetts homicide detective, attends a police conference Gloria plans to (reluctantly) shop with her friends and visit with Matt's niece, Lori Pizzano. When Gloria discovers the body of Lori's roommate in the young women's loft, there's no question that Gloria will be lending a hand in the investigation, especially when it's discovered that the two women were involved in the making of a documentary exposing the ozone depletion by a shady corporation. In between dining at famous New York eateries with her friends and visiting the City's famous sites Gloria discovers that the murdered woman was making a profit at blackmail and gathering no shortage of enemies, including the clients of a private investigator and the executives of a powerful corporation. Gloria finds herself torn between family loyalties and her need to ferret out the truth when she discovers that Lori has been less than truthful and may be implicated in the murder.

Surprisingly, the chapters from the point of view of Lori Pizzano prove to be the most interesting in this extremely pleasing mystery. Minichino does an admirable job conveying the moral conflict plaguing Lori as she finds herself unable to disclose either to the police or her own uncle her complicity in her roommate's schemes. Also refreshing is that after an initial rebuking, Rose and Matt are resigned to Gloria's investigation and refrain from their usual warnings to not interfere. Rose does, however, continue to campaign for a "real" wedding reception for Rose and Matt despite their attempt to escape a big party with their elopement. The Periodic Table Mysteries continues to be a reliable series sure to please fans with its humor, steady pace, and very likeable characters.

5.0 von 5 Sternen fun cozy 24. August 2006
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Four months married physicist Dr. Gloria Lamerino accompanies her husband Boston homicide detective Matt Gennaro to New York City where he is attending a police conference and when he is free they plan to enjoy the Manhattan Christmas season. While Matt attends a conference session, Gloria visits his niece, award winning documentary filmmaker Lori Pizzano on West Forty-eighth. However instead of Lori being there, to her shock, the scientist discovers the corpse of camerawoman, Amber Keenan and she believes the culprit just left via the window.

Gloria worries about Lori's safety when she learns that she was collaborating with the victim on a new project about the ozone layer that has led to threatening encounters with corporate suits who allegedly are ignoring governmental environmental regulations. She begins investigating and learns that Amber also worked as a photographer for Tina Miller, Private Investigator. Gloria ponders whether one of Miller's targets killed Amber or was it one of the suits that had her murdered.

The eighth Periodic Table Mystery is a fun cozy in which scientific sleuthing is combined with tours of New York City. The story line is fast-paced as Gloria takes Manhattan while Matt and NYPD plead with her to not provide the Lamerino solution. THE OXYGEN MURDER is a fabulous whodunit that will send newcomers searching for the backlist gas tales and long time fans looking forward to The Fluorine Murder.
